PAUL'S PRAYER FOR THE ROMANS
Romans 1:9 (NKJV) "For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers, "
It is not often that one finds a leader who is likewise committed to prayer. Paul labored in prayer for a body of believers he had never met. A pastor or preacher should never speak to people before he speaks to God about the people, I must kneel before god before I stand before my people.
