Watch Your Prayers

Lately I've been praying for a heart to share the gospel with my coworkers. I think God is giving it to me. I had a conversation with a coworker about the authority of Scripture, the nature of man, and the value of antidepressants. I felt a little bit of the old burning in the chest as I got into the debate, but mostly I felt sad for her.

I am starting to feel a heaviness about my lost coworkers. I guess this is good, but I was a lot happier when I just ignored their lostness. I want to make the same request that Paul made to the Ephesians:

Ephesians 6:18-20 ESV
(18) 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,
(19) and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel,
(20) for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.
