In our text today Paul reminds us of how much we are loved by God. Paul offers a prayer to God, on our behalf, asking that God will strengthen us with power through His Spirit in our innermost being. Many people today are cut off from God’s power and are lonely and without hope, because they have a general feeling of worthlessness. Sometimes those feelings lead to anxiety, depression, and neurosis, It can even cause us to be suspicious of others and hate those who are different than us.
This is why Paul’s prayer is so important. Paul reminds us of how great God’s love for us is! Until we have the epiphany that God thoroughly knows and thoroughly loves us and accepts us, we will be subject to those kinds of feelings and emotions. Join us today as we consider Paul’s beautiful prayer for us and examine our own prayer lives as well.
