“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.”
The Apostle Paul felt compelled to pray for people he wrote to. His letters are full of beautifully written passages where he lifts his readers up. And notice, he doesn’t usually pray for material things or even healings. No, Paul prays for our hearts and minds.
In this passage, he addresses how vital it is that we grow in our knowledgeof God. Paul understands that to live our lives as God calls us to, we need to hold on to the hope, riches and power He possesses. We must also believe that God wants to use those on our behalf.
I’m reminded to be aware of what I pray for. God certainly wants to give us good things, but He is especially pleased when we seek more of Him first.
