A Faith Talked About Around the World

Series: Recalibrate | Week 1: The Reason for Romans

Day Three Romans 1:8-10

Pray: Invite God into your time and ask Him to speak to you, then read the passage.

8 Let me say first that I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith in him is being talked about all over the world. 9 God knows how often I pray for you. Day and night I bring you and your needs in prayer to God, whom I serve with all my heart by spreading the Good News about his Son.

10 One of the things I always pray for is the opportunity, God willing, to come at last to see you.
