Lord, Help Me To Be An Encouragement To The Brethren Through My Prayers

We Christians should never stop praying. The Lord Jesus Christ is our model. When he needed to pray, he often sought either secluded places or high points. Jesus taught His disciples that talking to God through prayer was vital.


To the best of his ability, the great apostle Paul followed this aspect of Jesus' life. He was a continuous intercessor in prayer, not just for himself but also on behalf of the Christian community among Jews and Gentiles. Since he has faith in God, he prays earnestly and with reverence. As an example, Paul prayed for the Ephesian church.


Today, as we reflect on Paul's prayer for the Christians at Ephesus, it is vital that we take his petitions to heart. Paul's primary hope for the Ephesians is that, by the power of God's glorious grace, they would be fortified at the very center of their being, so that Christ would dwell among them through faith. In the same way, may all Christians have their trust firmly established in love, and may they have the insight and comprehension to comprehend the immensity of Christ's love.


We need to pray for one another. Like Paul, we must always be asking for one another if we are to run the Christian life and the heavenly race with greater success. Our shared love for the Lord and commitment to the gospel will ensure that we remain steadfast in Him. As a body and as individuals, we have more strength when we are united in Christ. If we pray to God in trust and honesty, as Christ and the beloved Paul modeled for us, I have no doubt that He will hear and answer our petitions.
