Do You Care…
“Epaphras, who is one of you, and a servant of Christ Jesus sends greetings. His is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured.”
The word ‘wrestle’ is the word ‘agonize’ and means to fight, contend, struggle. So Epaphras fought and contended in prayer for the church in Colossae.
When I think about agonizing in prayer, my first thought is to James 5 where he says that a righteous man who is fervent in prayer is powerful and effective. The word effective, in NT, is “always used of some principle or power at work” (Meyer), to be actuated, set in operation. So, a righteous man who prays fervently, or agonizes in prayer, actuates the power of God, sets in motion the power of God. My second thought is: I’ve got to care to agonize in prayer. Fervency, wrestling in prayer happens when I’m praying for something close to my heart, i.e. my wife, kids, health, faith, ministry, etc.
Epaphras prayed for the church in Colossae, people he knew, “who is one of you.” He prayed that they might stand firm in the will of God, thus not wishy washy or drifting. He prayed that they might be mature, fully assured in their faith and work. Thus, Epaphras set in motion the power of God in and for the church at Colossae.
What do you pray for, for this church? What do you ask God to set in motion for this family of believers? Do you care enough to agonize in prayer?
