Living life in the Son means living a life of prayer. As easy as that may sound, living a life of prayer is not always so easy. Why do we pray? What do we pray for? How can we grow in prayer? These are just a few of the questions we may have about prayer. The Bible has a lot to say about the subject and this Sunday we will look at one of Paul’s prayers in his letter to the Ephesians to help us answer some of these questions.
“For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge — that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” ~ Ephesians 3:14-21
Join us Sunday, August 27 as we discover the reason for Paul’s prayer, and gain a greater understanding of what Paul is praying for, so that we ourselves may be helped in our prayer lives – both individually and as a church.
