June 9—The Role of Prayer for New Believers


Read


Ephesians 3:14-21


Reflect


The prayers of the Apostle Paul are deep and inspiring. Today’s passage is one of Paul’s prayers for those whom he had the privilege of leading to Christ in Ephesus. It is certainly noble to share Christ with people, but that is not enough. The growth of new believers in Christ must be our constant focus in prayer. Notice the main points of emphasis in Paul’s prayer: 1) that the new believers would be strengthened with power through the Holy Spirit in their inner being; 2), that Christ would dwell in their hearts through faith; and,  3) that they would be rooted and grounded in Christ’s love. 


Engage


Read today’s Scripture passage. Say or write it out in your own words, considering the following questions:


· What does it say about God?


· What does it say about us?


· Is there a promise to trust?


· Is there a command to obey?


· How will I apply this Scripture to my life?


· Who will I show that I care by sharing this truth?


Memorize


Now read this week’s memory verse, Jude 1:20. Spend a few minutes working to memorize it.
