Today's Verse : Ephesians 1:17-20


January 19, 2012

I pray ... also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened
in order that you may know ... his incomparably great power for us
who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength,
which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead...
-- Ephesians 1:17-20

I still don't understand resurrection. I get the concept. I
believe God did raise Jesus. Every once in a while, I experience
that power through the Spirit's work in my life strengthening me
for ministry, helping me love others in tough situations,
comforting me when I'm broken, giving me insight when I study the
Word, and strengthening me in the face of temptation. I am humbled,
thrilled, and left longing for more. I want others I love to
experience this awesome power. I'm sure it's the same with you. So
let's join together today, thousands of us all around world, and
let's pray for God to empower those closest to us to discover his
power and to do great things through his Spirit who lives in them.

Loving God, Almighty Father, please empower me today to live for
you in glorious and wonderful ways. But Father, I don't just pray
that I may do this, please empower those that I love to live for
you. (Add the specific names of folks you want God to bless in this
way.) May we all know that the power in us tore away the bars of
death that held Jesus captive. May we experience this transforming
power and use it to your glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.
