Praying for the Church

Passage: Ephesians 1:15-19a

Having completed a mind-blowing passage praising the love of God and his work of redemption, Paul now moves into a beautiful prayer for his readers. What we can learn from the apostle is that our prayers need to be focused more on others than on ourselves and that the primary need we all have as Christians is a greater experiential knowledge of God; not a god of our own imaginations, but the Sovereign God extolled in Ephesians 1 who has planned, accomplished, and applied a gracious work of salvation to his chosen people.
