Epaphras, who is one of you and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends greetings. He is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured.

– Colossians 4:12 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Thank God for Epaphras! There are certain people who pray so intensely that the apostle Paul compares it to a wrestling match. The picture is one of spurts of intense strength that demand a large amount of personal resources. Have you ever prayed this way? There is much to be gained for those who are willing to become a modern day Epaphras. The Body of Christ needs people who are willing to wrestle in prayer for others. How about you? Can you take time to pray for someone else today?
