What Does the Bible Say about Prayer?

The Bible has so much to say about prayer. Look at a few verses:

Matthew 21:22If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
Mark 11:24Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Read Ephesians 3:14-21 again today in the New Living Translation. Ask God to show you what He wants you to see through them. Pray the verses for yourself and then for your family.

Ephesians 3:14-21 New Living Translation (NLT)

14 When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, 15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. 16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

What is the Lord showing you today?

Blessings on you as you pray God’s Word,
