The ministries of Intercession and Missions are inseparable! While not physically present with the Colossian believers, Epaphras, from Rome, was none the less “WORKING HARD” through prayer as a servant of Christ for the ministry in Colossae. Look at what Paul writes about Epaphras’ ministry of prayer…
“Epaphras, a member of your own fellowship and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends you his greetings. He always prays earnestly for you, asking God to make you strong and perfect, fully confident that you are following the whole will of God.I can assure you that he prays hard for you and also for the believers in Laodicea and Hierapolis…” Colossians 4:12&13
Over the course of our ministry we’ve encountered obstacles or sensed spiritual heaviness and the Lord has reminded us to inform our partners in prayer. We can point to several occasions when, shortly after rallying our partners to prayer, obstacles were removed, peace was restored, spiritual heaviness lifted and a door for ministry was opened.
Letters to Epaphras was envisioned to get prayer updates back to those who pray for our family in ministry, the area leaders we oversee, the nearly 200 church planters under their care and the unreached in Europe.
