Colossians 4:3-4 We pray. God responds.

If you are a Christian, your actions and your words should be reflections of God’s words that light up your heart. That is every Christian’s calling.
There are those who are called to do this as their vocation–devote their lives to spreading God’s Good News. And they need our prayers.
Our prayers of thanks, intercession, praise … God hears our prayers and responds by pouring out His blessings to fulfill the needs of those who proclaim His Good News.
We pray. God responds.
COL4_3-4
 
Colossians 4:3-4 (New Living Translation)
Pray for us, too, that God will give us many opportunities to speak about his mysterious plan concerning Christ. That is why I am here in chains. Pray that I will proclaim this message as clearly as I should.
 
Colossians 4:3-4 (The Message)
Don’t forget to pray for us, that God will open doors for telling the mystery of Christ, even while I’m locked up in this jail. Pray that every time I open my mouth I’ll be able to make Christ plain as day to them.
 

Why study the Bible this way?

If you take it into your mind and heart enough to translate it into a picture or word, it becomes part of you. If you add a sentence or two of explanation, you then engage another part of your brain which cements God’s words even firmer into your heart and mind. If you want to remember it, you can think of what you drew.
