“Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere, I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance. I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.”
Ephesians 1:15-20 NLT
Prayer is powerful in simple terms. With prayer we can heal and gain Gods strength in any circumstance and situation. Problem is people don’t pray enough, we only pray when we need something but we need to praise the Lord and not only pray for ourselves but for others. God will not always give you what you want, but that’s his will and he knows what’s best for you. We should mostly be praying for others because we simply don’t think in that way when we pray and here Paul prays for the people who are struggling to see God and we need to follow this example.
