Read Introduction to Hebrews

 

18 Pray for us; for we are confident that we have a good conscience, in all things desiring to live honorably. 19 But I especially urge you to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner.

 

13:18

Pray for us;

The request here is for the congregation to keep on praying for the author of Hebrews and his colleagues.

for we are confident [sure] that we have a good conscience,

The reason for this prayer is that the author ministers in a “good conscience” with honor. The “conscience” monitors our convictions and standards.

in all things desiring to live honorably.

The author has a good conscience with honor or integrity in every discharge of duty he executes. He does not want this congregation to misunderstand his motives.

13:19

But I especially urge you to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner.

 The author’s desire for prayer is that he would be restored to the congregation speedily with whom he had previous fellowship.

PRINCIPLE:

Prayer moves the hand of God.

APPLICATION:

Paul asked that the Ephesians pray that God would give him boldness (Eph 6:19). No leader can work under divine design without prayer.
