Thanksgiving and Prayer
"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. That power is like the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way." Ephesians 1:18-22 NIV
I think that most of us have too small a picture of ourselves and Jesus. Therefore many of us walk in hoplessness and defeat. The world seems overwhelming. But the Bible says that we are more than conquerers in Chrsit. Pray like Paul for God to open your eyes to see Him and yourself through His eyes.
What obstacles cause you hopelessness and despair? Pray for the truth to set you free!
