Prayer for God's People


Prayer for God’s People
(Ephesians 1:17-19, The Voice)

God of our Lord Jesus,
the Liberating King,
Father of Glory:
I call out to You on behalf of Your people.
Give them a mind ready to receive wisdom and revelation
so they will truly know You.
Open the eyes of their hearts
and let the light of Your truth flood in.
Show them what You have promised them.
Shine Your light on the hope You are calling them to embrace.
Reveal to them the glorious riches You are preparing as their inheritance.
Let them see the full extent of Your power that is at work
in those of us who believe,
and may it be done according to Your might and power.
Amen.
