Colossians 4:2–6 (ESV)
Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. 3 At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison— 4 that I may make it clear,
which is how I ought to speak.
5 Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. 6 Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each
Today’s reading is a reminder to continue to stay in prayer with thanksgiving, and always be careful of what you say. People are listening, so “let your speech always be gracious,
seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.” I know I have often prayed that I take advantage of the times that allow me to share the Gospel. I must admit that I have not prayed “that God may open to
us a door for the word.” I need to modify my own personal prayers to pray that God open doors with people that I come in contact, to share the mysteries of Christ.
I pray: O Lord, I give
thanks for all you have done for me. I add to my prayers tonight to open to me a door for the word and that I may clearly share the Word. Help me to take advantage of all the times the door is open and to not remain speechless. Use me as
a tool to proclaim Christ Crucified and Resurrected. Help me to be bold and to share with love. Forgive me when I fail. Amen.
