“Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy,”
King James Version (KJV)
1:4 With joy - After the epistle to the Ephesians, wherein love reigns, follows this, wherein there is perpetual mention of joy. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy. And joy peculiarly enlivens prayer. The sum of the whole epistle is, I rejoice. Rejoice ye.
Php 1:4 Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy. The repeated assurances shows us that Paul was wont daily to carry the interests of the churches he planted to God. In the case of this faithful church, he did it with joy.
