18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. In the Spirt, we are to pray about everything, for everything, and prayers and requests are specifically stated as two different things. We have the full armor on, and we are to pray. Weilding the word of God, bound by truth, more actions for us to do. I think of faith with out works is dead. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray for the Lords people. Believers. It does not say pray for all the people of the world, nor the lost, but for the Lords people. Our prayers for others is obviously needed also. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, I pray often that my words not be mine but Gods, that he lead my mouth, he put the words in me. I have a pastor friend that is pretty much a regular guy, a bit of an A#$ at times, but when he preaches/teaches I learn and hear so much of God, I think this is what we should all ask for as well as pray for those in leadership. 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should. Fearlessly. Another prayer I pray often for myself and others, that they have the Courage, and Strength to stand on God’s word and do his will- Man/Satan so often ‘gets his way’ because we let fear cause us to stumble. 21 Tychicus, the dear brother and faithful servant in the Lord, will tell you everything, so that you also may know how I am and what I am doing. 22 I am sending him to you for this very purpose, that you may know how we are, and that he may encourage you. 23 Peace to the brothers and sisters,[c] and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 24Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love. What Paul said, to you.
So here we are all suited up, wearing an armor, to battle the evil that will come against us. Praying for others.
