The Spiritual Blessings – Day 11

Ephesians 1:17

I pray that the glorious Father, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know Christ better.

The Thought

This is just one detail of a prayer that Paul tells the Ephesian church he is praying for them. Don’t you wish someone was praying that for you too? Maybe they are!

I am encouraged that Paul says that he continues to ask for the same thing. Do you know it is ok to keep asking God for more? Especially when it is something God longs to give His people. We all need a growing amount of wisdom and revelation.

We all need to know Him better than we already do.

The full prayer is here for you to read slowly and pray it for yourself. The pronouns have been changed so that it becomes more personal.

Ephesians 1:17-22

I pray that the glorious Father, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would give me a spirit of wisdom and revelation as I come to know Christ better. Then I will have deeper insight. I will know the confidence that he calls me to have and the glorious wealth that God’s people will inherit. I will also know the unlimited greatness of his power as it works with might and strength for us, the believers. He worked with that same power in Christ when he brought him back to life and gave him the honored position – the one next to God the Father on the heavenly throne. He is far above all rulers, authorities, powers, lords, and all other names that can be named, not only in this present world but also in the world to come. God has put everything under the control of Christ. He has made Christ the head of everything for the good of the church.
