Today's Verse : Ephesians 1:17

Since I was without a PC yesterday, I thought this Heartlight thought might speak to some of you, instead of "A walk through the Park."

Thanks to the guys who set me up with another PC!!

Subject: Today's Verse : Ephesians 1:17


June 17, 2009

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.

-- Ephesians 1:17

One of the best things we can pray for each other, and for
ourselves, is that we might better know God. The Holy Spirit helps
us better know God (1 Cor. 2), worship God (John 4), and speak to
God (Rom. 8). Let's ask God to use his Spirit to help us know him,
not just know about him. God is not only the Almighty Creator of
all things; he is also our Father who cares about us deeply.

Holy Father, God of all mystery and glory, please open my mind
and heart to know you better through the presence of your Holy
Spirit within me. Please bless my physical and spiritual family
with insight and illumination about you, your love, and your glory.
We want to know you more fully and reflect your character and grace
more completely. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
