Inspired to pray

A Model Prayer… to pray for each other.
Eph. 1: 15 –23


15 Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for Christians everywhere, 16I have never stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, 17asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Father, thank you for the stirring in my heart when I hear about the faith and fruit in the Army. Thank you for what you are doing in and through Winds of Hope and the hope family. By your spirit burn on my heart the desire to pray ceaselessly for the members of my faith family.

Revelation of Father’s heart
I ask God to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you might grow in your knowledge of God.

Father, I know that everything we have flows from a knowledge of you and of your heart. I pray upon those members of my family (natural children, spiritual children, wife, brothers and sisters, and my spiritual father, Eugene May) a fresh, new revelation of your heart. Cause us to know you better, more intimately. Flood our hearts, and our thoughts and our spirits with this revelation. May our hearts begin to beat in rhythm with your heart.

Well-light understanding of the promised future

18I pray that your heart will be flooded with light o so that you can understand the wonderful future he has promised to those he called.

My prayer for you, is that your heart might be flooded with light and understanding of the glorious future that Father has prepared for you and promised to you. In this time of uncertainty, may light flood your hearts, and hope spring up like a fountain. Thank-you for the calling you have for each of your lives. May our calling keep us living in the hope of all that you have promised.

Resources and unsearchable riches.

I want you to realize what a rich and glorious inheritance he has given to his people.

I pray that you would realize the glorious inheritance that is yours… inheritance from your earthly parents, your spiritual parents, and your heavenly Father. I pray that your ministry would lack for nothing, and that the “unsearchable riches”of Christ would be uncovered daily, that you would be in abundance and a source of blessing to all around you.

Empowerment (the same power that raised Christ from the dead, and glorified Him).

19 I pray that you will begin to understand the incredible greatness of his power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power 20that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God's right hand in the heavenly realms.

I pray that the power of God would be increasingly manifest in your ministry. No more ministry of “words”, but a ministry of power in the Spirit… the same power that raised Christ, will enable you to bring resurrection and new life.


21Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else in this world or in the world to come. 22And God has put all things under the authority of Christ, and he gave him this authority for the benefit of the church. 23And the church is his body; it is filled by Christ, who fills everything everywhere with his presence.

I pray that in the revelation of Father’s heart, and the floodlighting of your future, and the glorious resources, and divine power, you would find your place “resting and seated”with Jesus-Christ.
