In a powerful prayer Paul prays that the believers in Ephesus will get to know God better and will experience in a deep way the great things that God has done for them / has in store for them.

He points to what God has done for Jesus and encourages us to really allow that to change our lives today

How much do we desire this for ourselves? How much are we prepared to pray this for others?

Reading: Ephesians 1:15-23

Questions to think about:

  • This passage speaks of four things that God has done for Jesus. How do you respond to them?
  • Paul prays that the believers will know God better (v17). What would that mean for you?
  • Paul also prays that we would experience our hope, our riches and the power God has for us (vv18-19). What impact do these have on how we live today?
