First, p I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you,
Πρῶτον μὲν εὐχαριστῶ τῷ θεῷ μου διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ περὶ πάντων ὑμῶν ὅτι ἡ πίστις ὑμῶν καταγγέλλεται ἐν ὅλῳ τῷ κόσμῳ.
Paul is thankful to God through Jesus Christ for the Church in Roman. This reinforces the reality that all of our relationship to God is in Christ. Also Paul gives credit to God for the Roman Church
q because your faith is proclaimed in all the world.
Paul is not only thankful for their existence, but also that their faith is known and spoken of throughout the entire Roman world. Paul thankfulness of this fact also reinforces that God is behind it all.

r For God is my witness , s whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, t that without ceasing I mention you always in my prayers,
μάρτυς γάρ μού ἐστιν ὁ θεός, ᾧ λατρεύω ἐν τῷ πνεύματί μου ἐν τῷ εὐαγγελίῳ τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ, ὡς ἀδιαλείπτως μνείαν ὑμῶν ποιοῦμαι πάντοτε ἐπὶ τῶν προσευχῶν μου δεόμενος εἴ πως ἤδη ποτὲ εὐοδωθήσομαι ἐν τῷ θελήματι τοῦ θεοῦ ἐλθεῖν πρὸς ὑμᾶς.
Here is a picture into the devotional life of Paul...when he calls on someone to verify his concern for the Roman's, he calls on God. His preoccupation with the welfare of the Roman church overflows in his heavenly conversation with God. May this be the way of my heart.
asking that somehow u by God’s will I may now at last succeed in coming to you.
part of this prayer and longing is to continually ask for an opportunity to go and fellowship with the church there. Paul desperately desires to see the Church Universal grow in maturity and he longs to be a part of it. He will go to them rather than waiting for them to come to him.
For v I long to see you,
ἐπιποθῶ γὰρ ἰδεῖν ὑμᾶς, ἵνα τι μεταδῶ χάρισμα ὑμῖν πνευματικὸν εἰς τὸ στηριχθῆναι ὑμᾶς,
He longs to love them face to face. There are so many words you could use, but Paul uses one that expresses a certain desperation and strong desire to be with them. He loves them from afar
that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you—
His desire to be near them does not end with enjoying one another's presence. He desires to see them that he may give them a spiritual gift to strengthen them
actionpurpose
that is, that we may be mutually encouraged w by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.
τοῦτο δέ ἐστιν συμπαρακληθῆναι ἐν ὑμῖν διὰ τῆς ἐν ἀλλήλοις πίστεως ὑμῶν τε καὶ ἐμοῦ.
Paul lives under the assumption that we all have been given spiritual gifts for the purpose of encouraging and strengthening one another. we all have something to give and we should long to give and receive in community.
