Ephesians 1:15-21 AMP
15 For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people,
16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers;
17 [I always pray] that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may grant you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation [that gives you a deep and personal and intimate insight] into the true knowledge of Him [for we know the Father through the Son].
18 And [I pray] that the eyes of your heart [the very center and core of your being] may be enlightened [flooded with light by the Holy Spirit], so that you will know and cherish the hope [the divine guarantee, the confident expectation] to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints (God’s people),
19 and [so that you will begin to know] what the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His [active, spiritual] power is in us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of His mighty strength
20 which He produced in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion [whether angelic or human], and [far above] every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and world but also in the one to come.
My prayer for you is that God will fill you with wisdom and revelation to know Him more deeply. That the eyes of your understanding will be opened to His calling on your life, and to the richness of His inheritance in the saints. And finally, that you become more acquainted with His exceedingly great power, that He provides to those of us who believe.
Pray this prayer over yourself often. Make this your Ephesians prayer.
