Prayer of the Month: Ephesians 1:16-19

ESV Ephesians 1:16-19

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

I encourage you to use this prayer of Paul to guide your prayers for yourself and others this month. Enjoy! And may God make us warriors!
