This fall I have had the opportunity to actively intercede for many people including missionaries, personal friends, new believers, and believers who are putting themselves through the paces to grow. I didn't just want to be going through the motions to pray for them -- but I wanted to pray things that mattered. And what better way to do that than to pray God's own words for them? So I started praying through Ephesians -- would you like to join me?
Day 1: Bless them with grace and peace. (Ephesians 1:2)
Day 2: Pray that they would understand God as Father. (Ephesians 1:2-3)
Day 3: Ask God to open their eyes to their spiritual blessings. (Ephesians 1:3)
Day 4: Let them experience the truth: they are chosen. (Ephesians 1:4)
Day 5: May they be holy and without blame before our Savior. (Ephesians 1:4)
Day 6: Ask God to give them joy as they realize they are adopted as sons! (And this comes with an inheritance!) (Ephesians 1:5)
Day 7: Help them live to the praise of His glory. (Ephesians 1:6)
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
