Genesis 20:1-21:34; Job 23:1-24:25; Matthew 11:2-30

Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds. Colossians 4:3

Paul wrote these words while incarcerated in a Roman prison. Nevertheless, when he requested prayer it was not to be delivered from prison, but that a door would be open for him to speak about Christ. Sometimes we make the mistake of thinking that if our circumstances were more favourable we would be better able to be used of the Lord. Remember, the Lord uses those who are available to Him, despite their situation. —Sid Halsband

The heirs of salvation, I know from His Word,
Through much tribulation, must follow their Lord. —John Newton
