Prayer = Depending on God

God encourages us: Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ . . . Col. 4:2-3

This week choose two collegues you can be praying for daily. What do you think God might do in your life as you pray for them? What do you think God might do in their lives?
