Good Morning on this final day of our GMG Ephesians book study! It’s been a blessed journey!
Today we close with Paul’s detailed request for prayer in Ephesians 6: 19-24. I see 7 requests on his prayer list that progressively become more specific.
May this be our prayer, as well.
1- I pray that God will give me *utterance; that He will give me a voice, an opportunity to speak.
*utterance: articulation; a stated or published expression; a voice; power, style or manner of speaking
2- I pray that I will open my mouth *boldly.
*boldly: fearlessly, bravely; confident, assured
3- I pray that I will be a witness and promote the Gospel of truth.
4- I pray that I will be a witness wherever I am speaking assuredly just as the Lord would have me speak.
5- I pray that I will be transparent and accountable to the family of God.
6- I pray that I, with my family or any other team I might minister alongside, will be a comfort and an encouragement to the family of God, our brothers and sisters in Christ.
7- I pray that I will be a blessing, bringing to the brethren who sincerely love Jesus…peace, God’s faithful love, and grace.
