Theme: Labouring Fervently In Prayers


Today’s message emphasizes the importance of fervent prayer, especially intercession for others who may not be walking in the path of God’s truth. It highlights the spiritual battle believers face and the need to fight for the spiritual growth and salvation of those around them through prayer.


  • Laboring Fervently in Prayers: The message is based on Colossians 4:12, which mentions Epaphras as someone who “always labored fervently in prayers.” The phrase “laboring fervently” is translated from the Greek word “agonizomai,” which implies fighting. Epaphras was fighting for the spiritual growth and well-being of the Christians in Colossae through his prayers.
  • The Spiritual Battle: The message suggests that the enemy in this spiritual battle is Satan and his demonic forces. They aim to hinder or obstruct the Christian growth of believers and keep them from walking in the will of God. Ephesians 6:12 is referenced to highlight that the battle is not against flesh and blood but against spiritual forces.
  • Intercession for Others: Believers are encouraged to follow Epaphras’s example and intercede fervently for others, especially those who may have strayed from the faith or are not walking in the light of God’s Word. This intercession can have a significant impact on their spiritual lives and help them embrace the grace of God for their salvation.
  • Prayer Points: The prayer points provided in the message include breaking the influence of Satan over family members, friends, and others who are not yet born again. The prayer is for their minds and hearts to be opened to the Lord and for the light of the Gospel to shine into their hearts.
