A Praying Friend

Epaphras was a man who knew what it meant to intercede in prayer. He continually sought God’s face on behalf of people he knew who loved God. He prayed for them that they would be mature and learn their full stature in Christ.

He prayed for them to know what God’s will was in every day decisions. He was excited when he saw an individual growing in his or her understanding of God. He did not give up on people but continued to lift them up to the throne of Grace.

May we be like Epaphras (Colossians 4:12-13).
