YOUR 20/20 VISION

It’s no coincidence that being watchful and prayerful are coupled by the apostle Paul in his letter to the Colossians: “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” The word watchful is a throwback to the ancient watchmen whose job it was to sit on the city walls and scan the horizon for attacking armies or trading caravans.
They saw sooner and further than anyone else.
Prayer opens our spiritual eyes so we see sooner and further.
