"Pray for us: for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly." (Hebrews 13:18)
In "Biblical Perspective" for this week's lesson, Dr. Gordon Snider writes:
Is there a connection between the leaders of verse 17 and this request for prayer support in verse 18? Some would suggest that there is, and that this request shows that whoever wrote Hebrews had at one time been a leader among them. For we . . . have a good conscience. For here grammatically can be a cause for what follows. “Pray for us because.” If that is so here, the leader’s integrity becomes a call for prayer. Because he had lived blamelessly in their midst he hoped his people would be even more inclined to include him in their prayers.
