Biblical Prayer Focus
Ephesians 1:15-19
 For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints,  I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers,  that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might  . . .

Pray for the spirit of wisdom and of revelation so that you can have eyes to see.  Ask that you would deeply know the hope of God's calling, the rich inheritance Jesus has provided for you, and an awe-filled sense of the resurrection power that is "toward us who believe."
