As we wrap up our time here in Spokane, we feel the need for your prayers more than ever. The stress of making it all happen and the emotions of “it’s actually happening” may threaten to overwhelm us. But God is good and we are excited about what He has for us in the future months and years.
Sometimes it can be so easy to pray situationally. Prayer requests sound like, pray we can do this. Or pray that will happen. But the Apostle Paul’s prayers are a big challenge and encouragement to us in the deeper prayers we ought to be praying and the prayer requests we must not forget.
So, will you pray for our family as Paul did for the churches he served? Over the next few weeks, we are going to share some of Paul’s prayers and we would be honored if you would spend the time praying through these passages for our family! We’ll start in Ephesians.
Ephesians 1:15-19 (ESV)
“For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might”
