Y-Gen Prayer of the Day

Paul’s Prayer for Spiritual Wisdom

(Ephesians 1:15-21)

15 Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere, 16 I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, 17 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. 18 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.

19 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 20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. 21 Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come.


Lord, I do indeed pray that their faith in You is strong. I pray first that they do have faith in You and that they are putting you first in their lives. Living a godly life that glorifies You. I pray that You will continue to give them spiritual insight. Help their faith grow each day. May they grow closer to you and thus reflect the light of Jesus on this dark world. Place a hedge around them that Satan cannot get through, around, over, or under. May each one come to realize how truly awesome You are! Amen!
