People's Bible Notes for Colossians 4:2


Col 4:2 Continue in prayer. Prayer ought to be regular, habitual. The Christian should every day have a season of prayer. See Lu 18:1 Ac 1:14 Eph 6:18. Watch in the same. Watch that you pray aright, in earnest, and ask for what you ought. With thanksgiving. Let thanks for mercies given ascend as you ask for new mercies.
