Ephesians 3:14-21 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according, to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God, Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generation forever and ever. Amen.

We began the month by meditating on these verses.  I want us to revisit these verses and see how they motivate us to pray.  Prayer is difficult at times because of our finite nature.  Paul was motivated to pray because of the richness of God's grace.  He knew that God was not hard-hearted toward his children.  Paul knew that God would work through the prayers of His children to the extent that He takes our simple prayers and makes them into something beautiful for His glory and our good.  There may be occasions this year where you need to be reminded that God is able to do more through your prayers than in your worrying.  God will do great things through the prayers of a believing heart.  Will you make a commitment to spend time in prayer this year?
