Serve the word (Acts 6:4)

“We

Will persist

In prayer

And serving

The word.”

ἡμεῖς δὲ τῇ προσευχῇ καὶ τῇ διακονίᾳ τοῦ λόγου προσκαρτερήσομεν.

The author of Acts indicated that the twelve apostles (ἡμεῖς δὲ) said that they would persist (προσκαρτερήσομεν) in prayer (τῇ προσευχῇ) and serving (καὶ τῇ διακονίᾳ) the word (τοῦ λόγου).  They would not have to worry about serving the tables and making sure that no one was neglected.  These seven new deacon servers would take care of the material needs of the new Christian community, while the original twelve apostles would take care of the spiritual needs of this group.  However, this did not hold up, since some of these seven will take on major spiritual roles, like preaching and missionary work.  Do you persist in prayer and serving the word?
