In examining a portion of Ephesians we have reached one of my favorite sections.
Note how Paul prays for the Body at Ephesus.
What would happen to the Body of Christ locally if we were to do likewise?
15 For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints,
16 do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers;
17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.
18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.
“For this reason…” - what reason? See previous posts here and here.
Paul had heard of their faith in the Lord Jesus.
Paul had heard of their love for all the saints.
Paul did not cease giving thanks for them.
Do we give thanks to the Lord for one another?
Do we know the blessing we have in the Body of Christ?
Paul prayed for them.
He prayed that “the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory”…

Revelation in the knowledge of Jesus
This is what is available through in the Lord (more on later&hellip.
Are you living in this manner?
Let us join together today in praying for one another according to this pattern.
Simply read the verses as a prayer for one another.
What might the Lord do?
I do know He desires to move in power through His Body.
