Paul's Powerful Prayer

Ephesians 1:15-19 by Dr. Cory Gonyo

Paul’s Powerful Prayer Ephesians 1:15-19 Purpose: to have knowledge and sight of the Father’s glory in Christ 1. Paul’s Ceaseless Gratitude Ephesians 1:15 For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; Paul’s Basis for Prayer: Because they are faithful saints and they love saints 2. …To Have Spiritual Knowledge Ephesians 1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. Paul’s Petitions Prayer: That God grant a spirit of wisdom and revelation, in the knowledge of Him 3. … To Have Heart Sight Ephesians 1:18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. Paul’s Goal for Us in Prayer: That we know three facts that enhance the Father’s glory: 1) To know the hope of His calling 2) To know the riches of the glory of His inheritance (adoption language) 3) To know the “surpassing greatness” of His power towards believers
