Ephesians 1:15-23  "Prayer for Wisdom"

Paul offers this prayer for the church at Ephesus.  He starts by saying how thankful he is for them  Then he prays for them to have a Godly wisdom.  Note the words he uses.  First he uses wisdom but he also uses words like knowledge and enlightened.  Paul used words like this because he wants nothing to stand in their way to see all that they could by when the Lord Jesus Christ is in full control of their life.  Let me say that is what he would pray for us today if Paul were praying for your church or mine.  He wants us, as does our Lord, to be people of great faith in the Lord so we will shine the light of the Gospel wherever we may be.
