Order of Worship
Praying Biblical prayers is powerful, because we know that they express God's will for us and others. Last week we looked at the first of four prayers that the Apostle Paul wrote to churches in Ephesus, Philippi and Colossae when he was imprisoned in Rome.
Praise Worldview Prayer Video:
This week we will look at the second prayer of Paul in Ephesians 3:1421, to gain more insight into how we can pray effectively, especially during difficult or troubled times. We'll continue to look at the four common elements of Paul's "Prison Epistles" prayers: 1. 2. 3. 4.
Pray for spiritual knowledge and insight Pray for God's love to be evident in our lives Pray for God's power to be at work through us Pray for God to be glorified through our lives

Father, I come humbly before you, as part of your family through our Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that out of the riches of Your glory, that You strengthen __________/me with power through Your Spirit in their/my inner being, so that Christ may dwell in their/my heart through faith. And I pray that _________/I, being rooted and grounded in love, may have the power together with all those who serve you, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge, so that ___________/I may be filled with all Your fullness, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Now to You, Lord, who are able to do immeasurably greater than all that we can ask or imagine, according to Your power that is at work within us, to You be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout every generation, for ever and ever! Amen. By Dr. Faro
