Paul’s Prayer for the Ephesians

by Jason Deines

in Tips for Coping with Divorce

You can read the bible a hundred times and each time something different may stand out, saying “this is important”.  Of course everyone is different along with their circumstances yet I felt like sharing what Paul wrote to the Ephesians.

Ephesians: 1:17-19

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.  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, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.

Paul also records a wonderful prayer in chapter 3…

Ephesians:3 16-19

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

I think this is a great prayer for going through rough times such as divorce because it is during this time I did not feel loved at all and being able to grasp the love of God will see us through.
