“Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:10 Always - In all my solemn addresses to God. If by any means now at length - This accumulation of particles declares the strength of his desire.
Ro 1:10 Making request. One of his petitions was that God might permit him to visit the church at Rome. While at Ephesus he had said, "I must also see Rome" (Ac 19:21). His prayers were granted, but not in the way that he now expected. When he went to Rome it was as "the prisoner of the Lord" (Eph 4:1).
