Ephesians 1:15-23

November 27, 2008

Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, (Ephesians 1:15)
      Jesus, let our faith in you spill over to love for all the saints — even those leaders and teachers of the Episcopal Church that we sharply disagree with.

do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: (Ephesians 1:16)
      Holy Spirit, fill our prayers with praise and thanksgiving for all in your church.

that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him, (Ephesians 1:17)
      Father, please give all of us the spirit of wisdom and revelation so that we will know you as the father who loves us.

the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of his calling, what are the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, (Ephesians 1:18 )
      Jesus, we pray as blind Bartimaeus prayed, “that I may receive my sight.”

and what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his mighty power (Ephesians 1:19)
      Holy Spirit, help us show forth the power and love of Jesus in all that we do and say.

which he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, (Ephesians 1:20)
      Father, as you raised Jesus from the dead by the power of your Holy Spirit, we pray for the Episcopal Church that you will raise it to new life wherever it is dead and dying.

far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. (Ephesians 1:21)
      “We give you thanks, O Lord God Almighty, the one who is and who was and who is to come, because you have taken your great power and reigned.” (Revelation 11:17)

And he put all things under his feet, and gave him to be head over all things to the church, (Ephesians 1:22)
      “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for you created all things, and by your will they exist and were created.” (Revelation 4:11)

which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all. (Ephesians 1:23)
      “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!” (Revelation 5:12)

      “Blessing and honor and glory and power be to him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!” (Revelation 5:13)

A word received: Pray that my people will enter into my father’s love — that they will know my father’s love. I want my people to know that they are children by adoption into my father’s love and provision.
