30I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me.

Lord Jesus, obviously prayer is so important.  How many brothers and sisters are struggling all around the world because they are bringing Your Word and salvation to others.  How little I have prayed for them.  Father, I don’t come close to comprehending how united we Your children are.  I don’t come close to understanding the power of prayer.  That I can join in another’s struggles, and they can join in mine, and we together can expectantly bring our struggles before You and be used by You, the creator of the universe.  It is so awesome…and I fail to participate.  Help me Lord to understand, and to pray, and to struggle in unity.  *Romans15*
