“Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers” (Colossians 4:12).

We are thankful for preachers, pastors, teachers, and missionaries; but we want men and women of prayer, those who minister like Epaphras. Without a spirit of fervent, agonizing, persevering prayer, no spiritual work can prosper.

The precious labors of the prayer warrior demand no special gift, no peculiar talent, and no preeminent mental abilities. A Christian may not have the ability to preach, teach, write, or travel; but every Christian can pray. What we need in the church is a real spirit of prayer, a spirit that enters into the present need of the church and bears that need up to God in persevering, fervent, believing intercession at all times, and in all circumstances.
