Not enough Christians share their victories with one another. When we speak of things to pray about, it is rarely in the sense of how God God has blessed us, but more in the sense of how we need blessings and our daily struggles. But Epaphras shared with Paul and Timothy the whole picture of who his church in Collossae was. This gave them the ability to pray accurately despite not being personally involved there. The idea of vocal vulnerability seems like too simple a model to be a workable one for God’s plans, but it has proven itself to be the most effective. To share Gospel itself was to speak upon our interactions with God to everyone around us. To prophesy was to speak in the assembly upon what God had revealed. Healing was done by speaking. Even creation itself was spoken into existence. How unsurprising that prayer and praise should be done the same way. To effectively communicate need and blessing, we must effectively communicate. This closes the relational loop for believers.
