21 DAYS OF PRAYER

A COMPANION TO THE "A BETTER STORY" MESSAGE SERIES

DAY NINE

PRAY FOR OPEN EYES

This past Sunday we learned about the woman at the well. She traded in the story she’d been living for the new story Jesus was willing to share with her. We are praying and fasting because we’ve done something similar with our own stories.

Look at Paul’s prayer for the church in Ephesus. Pray through it today for yourself and those you’ve committed to pray for and with this week.
“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 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, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.” (Ephesians 1:17-19 NIV)
As we seek to join the Lord in his mission to seek and save the lost, may we continually grow in our knowledge of our hope and his wisdom and power.

PRAYER

God of our Lord Jesus Christ, glorious Father, I want to know you better. Give me the spiritual wisdom and insight that come from the Holy Spirit. Make my eyes focused and clear, so that I may see exactly what you’re calling me to do. Help me to understand the hope you have chosen me to receive, and to know your incomparable great power that works for us as believers.
