SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY- Ephesians 1:18
“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know Him better.” (NIV)
Thought of the day
Rick mentions the thing that stands out most to him about this scripture is the fact that Paul was one of the greatest apostles that ever lived and yet he is seen here praying for others. If we all followed Paul’s example we will all be prayed for by others. What an amazing concept!
Questions to ponder
1.) Do you spend time praying for others?
2.) Who is the Lord leading you to pray for? Ask the Lord to show you.
3.) Take time now, or at some point and pray for them. What is the Lord leading you to pray over them? Write these things down and pray them again later this week and in the days to come.
I have been serving in some way with Take the city since October 2013. I spent a lot of time on the prayer team in the beginning and encountered God’s heart for the city in a life changing way. When the teams came back and shared testimonies, it was always fun to see that our prayers coincided with some of their testimonies in special ways. More recently I have had the privilege of leading a team to a nursing home where I used to be an employee. I used to pray over the facility every day, and it was such a miracle to see an old friend who lives there give his life to Jesus on one of our outreaches a year later. God sure has a way of answering prayers. And Take the City is an answer to so many prayers that have gone up here.
