always asking in my prayers that if it is somehow in God's will, I may now at last succeed in coming to you.
For I want very much to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you,
that is, to be mutually encouraged by each other's faith, both yours and mine.
that I may be rescued from the unbelievers in Judea, that my service for Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints,
and that, by God's will, I may come to you with joy and be refreshed together with you.
But meanwhile, also prepare a guest room for me, for I hope that through your prayers I will be restored to you.
