Colossians 4:2-6

2Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. 3And 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. 4Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. 5Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.


Ministry doesn’t happen on your watch; it happens in God’s perfect timing. Therefore, it is vital to surround yourself in prayer and wait in patience, being ever watchful for the opportunities God puts in your path. Think back on your week. Were there opportunities that you missed to share the message of Christ’s love with your words and actions? Ask God to help you prepare for the next time that door is opened.
