“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what is the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.”  
Ephesians 1:17-18

Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 1:17-23 is so awesome!  It’s definitely worth memorizing for many reasons.  The biggest reason is to pray it over yourself.  Another reason is when you are praying for someone else.  How perfect it is to pray for a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus for that person.  That the eyes of their understanding will be opened, or the eyes of their heart will be flooded with light, as the Amplified Bible puts it.  So that they will know and understand the hope of his calling and how rich his inheritance is for them! 

There are times we don’t know how to pray.  This must be a good way as it is in the Bible, in the New Covenant and power packed!  Verse 19 goes on to say “And so that you can know and understand what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength.”   Immeasurable and unlimited power in and for us!  Wow!

Pray the power-packed prayer for those you are praying for.  It covers the bases.  Wisdom, knowledge, revelation, and understanding in Jesus!

Many Blessings,
