In Ephesians 6:19, St. Paul asks, “pray also for me, that speech may be given me to open my mouth, to make know with boldness the mystery of the Gospel for which I am an ambassador in chains, so that I may have the courage to speak as I must”.  As he is writing this, he is literally bound in chains in a Roman cell.  St. Paul is telling us, no matter where we are in our lives, young or old, that God’s will for us in happening now!  It is not after we achieve a certain degree or job, it is now.  St. Paul is urging that we put this prayer at the top of our own prayer lists; to be strengthened to fearlessly proclaim the gospel.  I pray that we may reflect on this prayer everyday as we live our lives.
