Ephesians 1:17–19, Praying to Know God

Join us in the Project 345 reading plan as we read through the New Testament.

Context: Paul tells the church in Ephesus that he has prayed for them since hearing of their faith.

Ephesians 1:17-19  “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.”

Observations:

  1. I keep asking that God will give you a Spirit of wisdom and revelation.
    1. So that you may know Him better.
  2. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened.
    1. In order that you may know:

i.     The hope to which He has called you.

ii.     The riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people.

iii.     His incomparably great power for us who believe.

Application: I want to commit these verses to memory over the next few days.  I need to pray them over my life, my family and my church.  “Lord, give us a Spirit of wisdom and revelation so that we may know You better!”

Are you praying for other believers to know God better?  Start praying right now…
