Power of Prayer
Prayer that ascends highest comes from the depths of the humblest heart. Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 1:15-23 is from a humble man who knows the power of prayer.
As we learned from Pastor Brandon on Sunday, there are various reasons why our prayers may not be answered. We accept that because we believe God can, we believe God will, and even if God doesn’t, we still believe.
Belief ignites power.
These verses (Eph. 1:15-23) allow us to see the construction of Paul’s powerful prayer. He prayed for God to give the Ephesians the Spirit of wisdom and revelation so they could know God better. Powerful. That they may have hope in knowing they are God’s people. Powerful. How amazing that Paul prayed they know the power, the great resurrection power, that the believers have.
It is interesting that in our most powerless times, in prayer, we can be reminded of how powerful Jesus has made us. We are powerful people who must grasp the power of prayer.
Please enter into a time of prayer and know that God hear’s you, specifically, as HIS child, pray in power.
