What Do You Pray For? part 1

September 1, 2019 Speaker: Brandon Phillips Series: Ephesians - The Church - A Mystery Revealed

Topic: The Church, Prayer Passage: Ephesians 1:15–1:18

Sermon Outline

What Do You Pray For?

As Paul prays for the Ephesian church, he gives us three crucial elements which should drive your prayer life. For your prayer to be effective, it must (be): 

  1. Comprehend the Real Circumstances (1:15)
  2. Comprised of the Right Character (1:16)
  3. Contain Requisite Content (1:17–18a)

The devil hates prayer. Our own flesh does not naturally love it. Therefore, it does not come full-born and complete and passionate from the womb of our heart. It takes ever renewed discipline - John Piper

"There is nothing to be valued more highly than to have people praying for us; God links up His power in answer to their prayers." - Oswald Chambers
