Paul did not hide his vulnerability to the Enemy's accusations, to pride, or even to depression. In his letters, however, the apostle's main concern was not for his personal battles. Instead, he continually asked his readers to pray that he might have utterance and boldness to proclaim the Gospel. He understood that the key to his ministry relied on the prayers of God's people. Alistair Begg encourages pastors and congregants alike to pattern our prayers after Paul's.
