Praying for Power
Paul is praying for our heavenly father to bring his children to maturity—that they may be filled “with all the fullness of God.” And it isn’t a badgering prayer. It isn’t as though our heavenly father is stingy in his answers or his help. He’s longing to do it. That’s what we will see in this prayer. He longs to do so much more than we are willing to ask! After all, He is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think!
