Powerful Prayer Points For Wisdom And Revelation
Today and next Sunday we’re looking at a prayer of Paul written to the Christians in Ephesus. Written while Paul was a prisoner (see Ephesians 3:1; 4:1; 6:20), probably at about the same time as the Letter to the Colossians, Ephesians shares with that letter many of the same phrases and expressions. Because there is no reference to Ephesus in 1:1 nor any local allusions or personal greetings, most scholars regard Ephesians as an example of what’s called an encyclical or “circular letter,” of which copies were distributed by Tychicus (see 6:21-22) to several churches in Asia Minor. When Paul’s correspondence was collected a copy of this letter was probably secured from Ephesus, the capital of the Roman province of Asia, and given its present title.
For many people, the word “saints” conjures up an image of someone like Mother Teresa or Saint Francis of Assisi. However, in the New Testament “saints” are the believers who make up the church. The majority of the believers in Ephesus were common people with ordinary jobs and everyday problems, just like us. Paul begins his letter to the Ephesians by commending the church for their faith and love for which Paul gives thanks and then he offers a prayer for them. Listen to Ephesians 1:15-23,
“15 I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, and for this reason 16 I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers. 17 I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, 18 so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints, 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe, according to the working of his great power. 20 God put this power to work in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come. 22 And he has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.”
Prayer: God of our Lord Jesus Christ, reveal yourself to me and grant me wisdom so that the eyes of my heart may be opened and enlightened. By your Spirit, may I know the hope and inheritance which you have given me and may the greatness of your power that is at work in Christ who is the head of the church also be at work in me.
“Peace be to the whole community, and love with faith,
from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Grace be with all who have an undying love for our Lord Jesus Christ.”
