12 Epaphras, who is one of you and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends greetings. He is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured.
My goal this semester is to become more like this guy named Epaphras. Not very much is written about him, but the fact that He is known for wrestling in prayer for those he loves pierces my very soul. The concept puzzles me and exhausts me at the same time. I try not to think about it because I don't understand how to get there. Then a day like today happens and I see the sheer necessity of wrestling for one I love. If I don't, I believe their lives will be effected forever. So...I'm asking tonight for a wrestling spirit. God, please teach me how to wrestle in prayer for those I love. Help me die to myself and obey you and become a woman who fights on her knees.
