Praying with Paul for Enlightenment (Eph. 1:17-20)

Glorious Father, God of our Lord Jesus Christ, I pray that you would give those I’m praying for a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in their relationship with You so that they might know You. Since the eyes of their heart have been enlighted, I pray that they will understand and appreciate (1) the hope You have called them to,
(2) the glorious riches of Your inheritance in the saints, i.e., how much you value them and all those who are your children, and
(3) the surpassing greatness of Your power that is available to us who believe — the same power that raised the Christ from the dead and seated Him at Your right hand in heaven.
