Power Through Prayer

Ephesians 3:14–21

How Should I Pray for Myself and Others?

Every Failure in the Christian Life is a Prayer Failure

“His first prayer (1:15–23) for the believers in Ephesus was for them to know God intimately so that they might know the following three things: first, referring to the past, that they might be acquainted with the hope of his calling; second, referring to the future, that they will understand the wealth of God’s gracious inheritance; and finally, referring to the present, that they would know the surpassing greatness of his power toward them. “ – Hoehner

“The first prayer is for believers to know their power; the second is for them to use it. Two things a pastor should be most concerned about are telling his people who they are in Christ and then urging them to live like it.” – MacArthur
