Enhancing On-going Ministry Through Equipping, Encouraging, and Interceding

Biblical Superhero

Several weeks ago, we celebrated National Superhero Day, which made me think beyond my more recent selections, to biblical possibilities.  Who is my biblical hero?  There are many, but I keep being drawn to a little-known prayer-warrior mentioned only once in the Bible.  The Apostle Paul describes Epaphras as, “one of you, a bondservant of Christ . . . always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God” (Colossians 4:12).  He was: (1) a bondservant; (2) a prayer partner; (3) in the will of God.  Why was Epaphras not better known?  Perhaps because he chose the often overlooked, low-profile work of prayer. Laboring in near obscurity he performed the invaluable ministry of intercession.  Others were more visible, and less effective. I want to be like Epaphras – a prayer warrior, in the will of God.  Who is your biblical superhero?
