Edwards: pray for ministers

Monday, March 9, 2015
    And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should.
    —Colossians 4:3-4 (NIV)
    If some Christians who have been complaining of their ministers... had said and acted less before men and had applied themselves with all their might to cry to God for their ministers—had, as it were, risen and stormed heaven with their humble, fervent, and incessant prayers for them—they would have been much more in the way of success.
    ... Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758), The Works of Jonathan Edwards, A.M., v. I, London: William Ball., 1839, p. 427 (see the book)
    See also Col. 4:3-4; Rom. 15:31; 1 Cor. 3:1-5; Eph. 6:18-19; 1 Thess. 5:25; 2 Thess. 3:1-2; Heb. 13:18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I lift up my ministers _____ in prayer before You, that they may clearly proclaim the Gospel.
