Welcome to Word on Wednesday! Today I am going to feature a prayer that is in the book of Ephesians that Paul prayed for the believers in Ephesus.
I often pray this prayer for my own life as well as others.
I would ask you to read it through several times and ask the Holy Spirit to give you understanding of the depth of meaning that is in these verses.
Then I would ask that you first pray this prayer over your own life, then pray it for others.
You may even want to print these verses out and go over them again and again this week. For many years I have kept a printout of these verses where I typically have my prayer time each day and often refer back and pray this prayer for myself and others.
May these verses bless you as I pray them over you today.
For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
