Romans 1:8-13 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Paul’s Desire to Visit Rome

First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you because the news of your faith[a] is being reported in all the world. For God, whom I serve with my spirit in telling the good news about His Son, is my witness that I constantly mention you, 10 always asking in my prayers that if it is somehow in God’s will, I may now at last succeed in coming to you. 11 For I want very much to see you, so I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you, 12 that is, to be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.

13 Now I want you to know,[b] brothers, that I often planned to come to you (but was prevented until now) in order that I might have a fruitful ministry[c] among you, just as among the rest of the Gentiles.
