Your sincere answer when people ask how they can pray for you reveals what is most important to you. This being the case, listening to Paul as he shares his prayer requests shows us not only what was of greatest import to him, but also confronts us with what should be paramount to us. Paul's prayer request, even as he was incarcerated, was for power to proclaim the gospel. His prayers for evangelism should fire our prayers for evangelism.
