The Bible contains some amazing prayers. From the great prayer content in the Psalms, to the Lord’s prayer given by Jesus as a model for how to pray, to the great High Priestly prayer given by Jesus in John 17, to the amazing prayers of worship in Revelation. The deep and wonderful prayer in Ephesians 3:14-21 is among the most profound and beautiful in the Scriptures. For the second time in this short book, Paul’s communication changes direction. Rather than talking to us about God, he simply transitions to talking to God about us. In this prayer, Paul asks god to give us strength and power, that Christ would dwell in our lives, and that our eyes would be opened to the vast love of Christ. Every time we come to a prayer in the Bible, we should do two things. First, we should look at the prayer as something God desires for us, a prayer He intends to answer in the lives of those who believe. Second, every prayer is also a model for us to follow, an example that teaches us how to pray. This prayer has rich nuggets that we can integrate into our prayers for each other, our kids, and for Genesis Church. And the hope is this, “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generation.”
