Depending on god in
“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison - that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.
- Colossians 4:2-4
We depend on God for the inspiration of ministry endeavors, for the opening of doors for the proclamation of the Gospel, and to open the hearts of the hearers of the message. While we realize that God intends to use various means of ingenuity that He gifted us with, we also realize that God intends for us to be utterly dependent on Him throughout the process. We are joining His work, not the other way around.
“Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,”
- Ephesians 6:18
