2 Luke 18:1;Rom. 12:12Continue in prayer, and watch in the same ch. 2:7with thanksgiving;
3 Eph. 6:19Withal praying also for us, that God would 1 Cor. 16:9;2 Cor. 2:12open unto us a door of utterance, to speak Eph. 6:19the mystery of Christ, Eph. 6:20;Phil. 1:7for which I am also in bonds:
4 That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
5 Eph. 5:15Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, Eph. 5:16redeeming the time.
6 Let your speech be alway Eccl. 10:12with grace, Mark 9:50seasoned with salt, 1 Pet. 3:15that you may know how ye ought to answer every man.

8 Eph. 6:22Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that he might know your estate, and comfort your hearts;
9 With Philem. 10Onesimus, a faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you. They shall make known unto you all things which are done here.
