Pray for Power to Stand Firm

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Ephesians 6:10 (KJV)
Paul was in prison. It was around AD 62 while he was in prison in Rome when he wrote to the believers in Ephesus. It is one of his Pauline Epistles. It is one of his Prison Letters. It was around the same time that he wrote to believers in Colosse (Colossians) and to an individual believer (Philemon).
He was in prison, but he was writing to these folks in Ephesus in order to encourage them.
I know. I know. It seems backwards. It’s like they should have been rallying the congregation to launch Paul’s Pen Pals as a prison outreach ministry or stirring up the community with the hashtag #FreePaulNow or something like that.
But that wasn’t the case.
Paul sought to offer these believers encouragement in their time of spiritual need.
