Paul's Prayers For the Church

This week we continued looking at Paul's Prayers for the Church. In Ephesians 1:15-23, Paul prays for the church to know God better. He prays that their hearts will be opened, not just their minds. Paul then prays for three specific things: the church to realize the hope they have, their worth and their victory. If we realize the hope we have, we can endure and persevere in this life. Our current circumstances don't determine our future; what we are promised at the end of the circumstances make the difference. Secondly, God looks at the church as an inheritance. You make God smile! You matter so much to Him. He has purchased you to give to Himself - that is your great worth. Lastly, there is a great power at work within us! We have the victory. If we know the power that is at work within us, we can look at any situation in the world or in our lives calmly. The same power of God that is in the resurrection is at work for you. Remember He reigns at this moment and nothing happens outside His control!
