The more I read the letters of the Apostle Paul to early churches, the more his prayers are highlighted within my heart. He loved Jesus so very much and he loved the people of the church with such passion. His letters are full of prayers that should be etched on our hearts for each other.
The following prayer is adapted from Ephesians 1:15-23 and 3:14-21.
A Prayer of Spiritual Wisdom and growth for Victory Family Church
All praise and glory, to our Father God and our Lord Jesus Christ, who have blessed us, with every spiritual blessing, because God made us to be His family!
God, I thank you for my church family and the people you have brought into my life. Thank you for their faith in Jesus and the love they demonstrate for your people.
I pray, Father, for each and every one of the people of VFC, including myself, that You, our generous, merciful and loving God will give us, spiritual wisdom and insight so that we grow in knowledge of You.
I pray that our hearts are open, receptive and flooded with light so that we can be confident in the hope that you have given to those you have chosen to be your holy people, rich and glorious in the inheritance through Jesus Christ.
I pray, Father, that we understand your incredible power for us who believe.
I pray that we would know, understand and BELIEVE that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in us! That this same power that gave Jesus all authority, far above any ruler or authority, in this world or the world to come, has also been given to us.
I pray that we grow, like Jesus did when he was on earth, in favor of God and man so that the work you have assigned to us is fully completed.
In the awesome name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God be the glory.
