The Two Great Prayers in Ephesians

The Two Great Prayers in the book of Ephesians

There are two great prayers in the book of Ephesians that Paul prays.

  • Ephesians 1:15-23 – a prayer that God would grant the believers  a spirit of wisdom and revelation.  This prayer is so we believers could see what God sees.  God’s perspective is from heaven and not from earth.  From the heavens God sees Christ far above all the crazy stuff (sin) happening on the earth.
  • Ephesians 3:14-19  – a prayer for spiritual strength so that Christ could dwell in our hearts through love. This prayer is so that the riches of the vision could be practical in the believers lives.  It is Christ living in us that allows the high vision of the book Ephesians to be lived out in us. This practice is described in details in chapters 4 through 6.
