Bible: Eph. 1:15-20; 3:16-19
Prayer for Wisdom and Revelation
1:15 For this reason, 1 because I 2 have heard 3 of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love 4 for all the saints, 1:16 I do not cease to give thanks for you when I remember you 5 in my prayers. 1:17 I pray that 6 the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, 7 may give you spiritual wisdom and revelation 8 in your growing knowledge of him, 9 1:18 – since the eyes of your 10 heart have been enlightened 11 – so that you may know what is the hope of his calling, 12 what is the wealth of his glorious 13 inheritance in the saints, 1:19 and what is the incomparable 14 greatness of his power toward 15 us who believe, as displayed in 16 the exercise of his immense strength. 17 1:20 This power 18 he exercised 19 in Christ when he raised him 20 from the dead and seated him 21 at his right hand in the heavenly realms 22
3:16 To the woman he said,
with pain you will give birth to children.
You will want to control your husband, 3
but he will dominate 4 you.”
3:17 But to Adam 5 he said,
“Because you obeyed 6 your wife
and ate from the tree about which I commanded you,
‘You must not eat from it,’
in painful toil you will eat 9 of it all the days of your life.
3:18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
but you will eat the grain 10 of the field.
3:19 By the sweat of your brow 11 you will eat food
until you return to the ground, 12
for out of it you were taken;
for you are dust, and to dust you will return.” 13
