Prayer is often neglected by God’s people. Epaphras was a faithful servant, hard worker, and prayer warrior. Burdened by the spiritual immaturity he saw in others, he went before the throne of grace and “struggled” for God’s people in prayer. He wanted the people in his church to have assurance of the will of God and to know how to act. So he took these burdens to God in prayer. What a privilege to carry the spiritual needs of our brothers and sisters to God! May this man’s example compel us to more prayer and intercession.
