“And pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak (Ephesians 6:19-20).

While maybe not literal chains, as was the case for Paul, believers can find themselves shackled by competing voices within the culture. Bold and unbridled is a prayerful pursuit that must not be neglected. Paul’s three-time admonition to “stand firm” (vs.11,13,14) is a stern reminder that some things are worth standing up for.
