The prayer in Ephesians, beginning with verse 17, sets
the stage for receiving life, revelation, understanding.

"...that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father 
of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of 
revelation in the knowledge of him..."

I do believe if you stopped right there going no further,
you would grow in your faith. Without a revelation
of Jesus, the Bible becomes only a book of stories and
rules. Without revelation we cannot grasp "the hope to 
which we are called"

A dear man of many years came across this prayer at the
age of seventeen. It so took his heart that he prayed it
often throughout each day. His insights into scripture are
stunning! He knows, not just the Bible, but the God of
the Bible. He once took a single scripture and preached
four, 90 minute sermons! Here is that sentence:

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is
stayed on thee, because he trusts in thee." Is 26:3

Ah, reader, the blog today is a challenge to me to stay
in a verse; pray it, ponder it, embrace it. Today I took
the prayer out of Ephesians 1 and prayed it over you!
