Romans 1:10

_ _ Making request, if by any means now at length I may have a prosperous journey by the will of God, to come to you — Though long anxious to visit the capital, he met with a number of providential hindrances (Romans 1:13; Romans 15:22; and see on Acts 19:21; see on Acts 23:11; see on Acts 28:15); insomuch that nearly a quarter of a century elapsed, after his conversion, ere his desire was accomplished, and that only as “a prisoner of Jesus Christ.” Thus taught that his whole future was in the hands of God, he makes it his continual prayer that at length the obstacles to a happy and prosperous meeting might be removed.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 1:8-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 1:10

Always — In all my solemn addresses to God. If by any means now at length — This accumulation of particles declares the strength of his desire.
