Colossians 4:2–6

2 Be faithful to pray as intercessors who are fully alert and giving thanks to God. 3 And please pray for me, that God will open a door of opportunity for us to preach the revelation of the mystery of Christ, for whose sake I am imprisoned. 4 Pray that I would unfold and reveal fully this mystery, for that is my delightful assignment.[a]

5 Walk in the wisdom of God as you live before the unbelievers,[b] and make it your duty[c] to make him known. 6 Let every word you speak be drenched with grace[d] and tempered with truth and clarity.[e] For then you will be prepared to give a respectful answer to anyone who asks about your faith.
