Pray That the Word of the Lord May Have Free Course!
‘Pray for us, that the Lord’s word may have free course,’ Paul asks for dedicated prayer partners who will pray nonstop for his team, ministry, and himself. ‘Pray for us,’ the word “for” is the Greek word peri, which means around or about. Paul’s ministry took him to places where the Church was non-existent, so the Greek could be better translated as ‘Pray for us, that the Lord’s word may have free course.’
“Pray that we will be able to keep up the pace that is required for us to get this message out!” Paul asks for prayer that the Lord’s word may be glorified in Second Thessalonians 3: “Pray that the word of the Lord will spread quickly and without resistance!”
