Praying Scripture: How to pray for others

Praying Scripture: How to pray for others

Continuing in Ephesians, this section just lends itself as a great prayer for others. This takes it out of the box of praying for others to have a safe and happy life. (Not that safety or a smooth day is a bad thing.) This is meaty stuff here.

Here is a passage from Ephesians:

Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere, I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, 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. 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. (Ephesians 1:15-18 NLT)

Here is how it could be personalized into a prayer:

This is a powerful prayer. More than anything else, we need a deepening faith and spiritual wisdom to know God better. The storms of life will come (or may already be at your door). Faith and wisdom will carry us through. So much in life doesn’t make sense this side of eternity. Until then, we need the Sustainer to deepen us, strengthen us, and flood us with his hope.

Who will you pray this for today (this week)?

Since I began writing this, I was challenged to pray this for three people. Two of them are in the midst of life’s storms. May God show them each that they are called by him, are his holy ones, and that they are God’s rich and glorious inheritance.
