Person of Prayer
The Upward Look
by Max D. Hutto,
“I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.” Ephesians 1:16 NIV
Paul is considered a great missionary, preacher, teacher, and theologian, but he was also a great prayer warrior. Often in his letters Paul stated that he was regularly praying for his readers. Here Paul expressed his thankfulness to God for the Ephesians, for their faith and love. He was always mentioning them in prayer. These prayers were more than just a general blessing. He prayed for specific requests as revealed in the following verses. Paul was constantly and consistently interceding in prayer for others.
Lord Jesus, I yearn to be a person of prayer. Help me to become consistent in praying for others. When someone comes to my mind, let that prompt me to pray for them.
