John Piper, while preaching on Colossians 4:2-6, said, “Pray the locks off of peoples hearts. Pray open the doors of willingness to come, and pray open the doors of faith. If Paul could imagine himself speaking the gospel in a way that was not clear and bold and powerful, how much more can I imagine that for myself. Think of it: the greatest preacher and missionary who ever lived (besides the Lord Jesus) said that the effectiveness of his preaching depended on the prayers of the church. If that is true for Paul, it is true a hundred times over for me.”
