Pray that the saints would know by experience the result of a persevering prayer life this year—having speech filled with grace, walking in wisdom toward those without, and knowing how to redeem the time (Col. 4:2, 5-6).

Col. 4:2, 5-6—Persevere in prayer, watching in it with thanksgiving…Walk in wisdom toward those who are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.
