Join us for the next few Wednesdays for a mini-series exploring some of the prayers of the New Testament. In each “minisode” we’ll read the prayer straight from the Bible, discuss some key takeaways we find and end with some practical applications in our own prayer lives! This week we get pretty candid talking about how praying for wisdom and revelation for yourself or others can mean praying for the courage to take the hard road, and what that has looked like in our own lives.

15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, 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 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 his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. Ephesians 1:15-19 (NIV)
