Praying from Colossians 4:10 relating to Unity, Hospitality, Obedience.
Dear Lord, we thank you for the example of Aristarchus, who remained faithful to you even in the midst of imprisonment. We pray that we too may have the courage to stand firm in our faith, even when faced with difficult circumstances. We also ask for your blessings upon Mark, the cousin of Barnabas, and pray that he may be welcomed and received with open arms wherever he goes. May we always be ready to extend your love and grace to those around us, just as you have shown us. Amen.
Verse: Aristarchus, my fellow prisoner, greets you, and Mark the cousin of Barnabas ( concerning whom you received instructions, “if he comes to you, receive him”),
This is a Command. The reader is instructed to receive Mark if he comes to them.
