Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. I am sending him to you for the express purpose that you may know about our circumstances and that he may encourage your hearts. Epaphras is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured. Complete the ministry you have received in the Lord. (Colossians 4:6, 8, 12, 17)
Lord, bless me to make the most of every opportunity, be it at work, at home, or among the crew when we assemble to worship you. Let my conversation always be full of grace and seasoned with salt. Your salt is truth and good for the preserving of our soul. Your grace is love and good for preserving our hope in you. May I in all ways at all times offer your grace mixed with your truth. When I do this, I will know how to answer everyone.
Lord, may I send prayers, words, and others to my brothers and sisters for the exact purpose of encouraging their hearts. When I send words of encouragement, I water the seed others have sown. May my words nourish and nurture the hearts of those who hear my voice and read what I write.
Lord, may I always wrestle in prayer for all those in our crew, in my family, and community. May I pray on their behalf that they may stand firm in ALL your will and remain mature and fully assured of the hope we have in you.
Lord, may I see to it that I complete the work I have received from you.
Amen and amen.
