"Praying with Paul" - Romans 15:13-33 - A strive in prayer to live for God's will

Tomorrow Stefano will conclude in San Lazzaro church the series: "Praying with Paul", in which we have interacted with Paul's prayers in his letters.

For this sermon: "A strive in prayer to live for God's will", we'll engage with Romans 15:13-33.

To introduce this sermon, we'll ask ourselves: 
Have you ever prayed before a journey? 
For what Paul asks prayers before his journeys?

These will be the headings of the sermon:
1. A prayer for the journey towards Jerusalem
2. A prayer for the journey to Rome towards Spain

I appeal to you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God on my behalf, that I may be delivered from the unbelievers in Judea, and that my service for Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints,  so that by God's will I may come to you with joy and be refreshed in your company. May the God of peace be with you all. Amen. 
Romans 15:30-33 (ESV) 

To dig deeper with the themes  
we are engaging with in this series, 
Stefano is encouraging the church  
to read and interact with the book of   
D. A. Carson 

A Call to Spiritual Reformation: 
Priorities from Paul and His Prayers.   

This book is also available in Italian
