Eyes of Your Heart

For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. 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. That power is the same as the mighty strength (Ephesians 1:15-19 NIV)

Paul didn’t pray for less persecution of the saints.  He didn’t pray for their safety.  He prayed that they would have more….more knowledge of Jesus.  He prayed that the “eyes of their heart” would be opened so they could see the hope He brings and so they would know of His power which was working on their behalf.  When we pray to know Him better, that is the most we can pray for and it is truly all we need.
