Praying with Paul: 'Magnificent Service'

Ephesians 3:1-8

Dear Father,

Thank you for the great apostle Paul and for his life of magnificent service. I know that it was through your graciousness that he was called. It demonstrated the working of your great power to turn a human life from rebellion to obedience.

Thank you for such a man, who could count himself as the very least of all your people. Thank you for such humility. He boasted not of himself but of you! My Father, let me imitate him completely in this!

Thank you that through him, at least at first, the unsearchable riches of Christ were proclaimed, to make all men see what was the plan of the secret which you had kept hidden for ages in yourself, the God who created all things.

In the name of Jesus I give you thanks and make these requests. Amen.
