Day 5

A Prayer for Revelation

“Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 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, 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, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe…”

Ephesians 1:15–19

Father of Glory,

You alone are worthy of all praise and glory! We thank You for the privilege of worshipping and serving You at The Woodlands Methodist Church. We thank You for this community of faith that believes in the ways of our Lord Jesus Christ and loves Your saints both here and around the world. We thank You for all the members of this family of faith. Lord Jesus, give us as Your people a spirit of wisdom and revelation that we might know You more intimately.

Holy Spirit, open the eyes of our understanding that we might know the hope of our calling, that we might receive all the riches of our inheritance in You, and we might experience in greater ways the power of Christ’s resurrection that lives within us. May we not keep this indescribable gift to ourselves but live it out in a world that needs to know Your powerful wisdom, love and grace. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
