Being Excited to Pray

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us…”
(Ephesians 3:20, NIV)

This is the Bible verse I came across today as I was reading Ephesians 3. Whenever I read it, I get SO excited to pray—knowing that if I pray according to Jesus’ Will, I will be heard and given what I ask for on His time table (James 4:1-3). While Jesus is NOT a genie in a bottle granting my every wish and whim, this verse It encourages me to dream, and to know that if those dreams are Jesus’ will, He delights in giving me those desires of my heart: “Let God grant what is in your heart and fulfill all your plans” (Psalm 20:4, CEB).

So, my friends and readers, I challenge you today: Be totally and completely honest with Jesus in prayer. What are the deepest longings and desires of your heart? Are you disappointed they haven’t come to fruition, tired of waiting, and feeling discouraged? I completely encourage you to bring your whole self to Christ, and to entrust all you care about to Him. After all, He can do EXCCEEDINGLY MORE than we could ever ask or think!

Do you know Jesus?

It is because of Jesus that we are children of God who have direct access to His throne room. Learn more about Jesus, and what He did to give us this amazing relationship with the Father, here.


Please pray (find the prayer sheet here)

  • Jesus knows what is in your heart anyways, and it strengthens your relationship with Him.
  • For those around the world, especially in Nigeria. God is still working there, even if we don’t see it plainly right now.
  • For the Chibok girls and Leah Sharibu. Pray that they would be safe and free, and that Leah would be freed from Boko Haram captivity.

Thank you for your prayers!
