Two things that make me uncomfortable are prayer and strangers. I am not good with either. Tonight the Bible reminds me to persevere with respect to both.
Persevere in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving; at the same time, pray for us, too, that God may open a door to us for the word, to speak of the mystery of Christ, for which I am in prison, that I may make it clear, as I must speak. Conduct yourselves wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you know how you should respond to each one.
Colossians 4: 2-6
Prayer does not come easy to me. But I feel like I am slowly learning.
Please open the door to your word. Make it clear for me and those around me. Help me to make the most of opportunities with others. Help me to reflect your word.
