Epesians 1-4

My church is begining a series called Bridging the Gap and I couldn't help but thank Him for my blogging friends and it struck me that what if I asked you all to pray this with me......
Eph. 1:15- 23 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. 17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, 20 which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

I am praying for in this season those who have a zeal for God but not knowlege, in this season of HOPE that the Holy Spirit guides and convicts them to a church that preaches Him and Him crucified...pray it for them for us. I thank God for those of you who live lives dependent on the Spirit and pray that the aroma of Christ wafts off of you. I pray for more and more lost to be found in Christ...I pray for those of us who KNOW, live in that knowing and trust what God wants to do in and through us . I pray this be a season of people to really come to know who Christ is.....please let's pray together for Jesus to be glorified this Christmas season and beyond. He is such an amazing God......

Yes, praise God! When I am focused on him, all things feel so good, but when I stray, I feel the demons at the door step. Thanks for your words and blog!!!
