Paul's Activity and Prayerfulness
Philippians 1:4-5
Always in every prayer of my for you all making request with joy,…

While his life was one of unexampled activity, it was also one of continual prayerfulness. These two aspects of his life are mutually explanatory. His activity was unwearied, just because his prayerfulness was unceasing. His religion was a life, and the heart of that life was prayer. The risen and exalted Saviour's words uttered regarding him at his conversion held good ever afterwards: "Behold, he prayeth." "As a good soldier of Jesus Christ," he had all prayer as the weapon of his warfare.

(J. Hutchinson, D. D.)
