As we’ve studied the topic of prayer in the New Testament – we come to two letters written from Paul to his ‘apprentice’ Timothy. These are letters written about helping to lead the church moving forward. It speaks of thanksgiving, intercession, prophecy and the laying on of hands. With a constant reminder that we live for an entirely different kingdom the Kingdom of Heaven. It presses us to do the work of God – by faith; it reveals the great gifts of the kingdom of heaven – for those who believe; and demonstrates that if Paul can be redeemed – anyone can be. It’s an exciting couple of letters – that propels the hungry children of God to join the mission of God.
