Paul, A Man Of Prayers

Eph. 1:15-23

When we think of prayer warriors we think of Moses praying for his people, David confessing his sins and seeking help, Elijah on Mt. Carmel calling down fire from heaven, or Daniel praying when it was against the law in a hostile land. But what about Paul? There are many prayers recorded from others, but few from him. Can such a great Christian exist without prayer? The passage today shows an example of his prayer life. There are many instances in Acts and the epistles that allude to the fact that prayers was a major part of his Christian life that he gave an instruction that we should pray without ceasing – 1 Thess. 5:17. Keep in mind that Paul wrote this letter and prayed this prayer from a Roman prison. Bound by chains…his liberty restricted, but his prayers could not be held down.

How is our own prayer life? Without a good prayer life, we cannot make success of our Christian journey.

Point of Emphasis: Pray without ceasing to keep on growing

Prayer Point: Lord, make me a prayer warrior for myself and others. Help me to make steady growth in my prayer life
