Ephesians 1:17-19

We pray: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power . . . 1. Father of Glory, draw us closer. Ignite desire in our hearts. Awaken Love. We want to know you. Would You help us enter into the fullness of what it means to know You. Would You grant us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You- that the eyes of our understanding would be enlightened. We want a greater revelation of You Father; of You Jesus; of You Holy Spirit. We want to know you intimately; to grow in our understanding of Your heart; to set our hearts on what moves You; to care about what delights You. We want to know You and be known by You; to attach ourselves in intimacy/to abide in You/to draw close to You. Who are You? What does it mean that You are the Father of Glory? What does it mean that You are the Bridegroom-Redeemer; the Righteous Judge? What does it mean that You are our Comforter? What do Your names mean, Lord? What do they reveal about You; about Your emotions and Your character? We want the truth about who you are in our inner most being. It’s in knowing You that we find our greatest pleasure. It’s in knowing You that we have eternal life. You love to reveal Your heart to us. You said if we searched for You with all of our hearts, we would find You. Help us search for you with all of our hearts Lord. We want to delight in You. We want to know You more. Lord, would You grant us wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You. In Jesus’ name we pray: release the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You Lord, transform the eyes of our understanding. In Jesus’ name we pray that the eyes of our understanding would be enlightened
"How blessed are those who are pure in heart, for it is they who will see God! Matthew 5:8 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts; and in the hidden parts You teach me wisdom. Psalm 51:6 And this is eternal life, that they may know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent John 17:3

For This reason . . . we have not ceased to pray for you to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding Colossians 1:9 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that ye may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man; Ephesians 3:16 For I know the purposes which I am planning for you, says Jehovah; purposes of peace, and not for evil; to give you posterity and a hope. Then you shall call on Me, and you shall go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you shall seek and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29: 11-13

Reveal Yourself to us, Lord (i.e. Your thoughts, emotions, desires, etc.). Reveal what delights Your heart. Reveal what brings You pleasure. Reveal Your love of Justice and Mercy. Reveal the Glory of Your Beautiful Son; the powerful tenderness of Your Holy Spirit; the marvelous wonders of your Fatherhood. We love You Lord. Release the spirit of wisdom and revelation. Enlighten our understanding. In Jesus’ name, reveal Yourself to us today.
a) A false balance is an abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight. Proverbs 11:1 b) Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight. Proverbs 12:22 c) The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight. Proverbs 15:8

d) Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaks right. Proverbs 16:13 e) f) O man, He has declared to you what is good. And what does Jehovah require of you, but to do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8 For you do not desire sacrifice, or I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise. Psalm 51:16-17

g) . . . But I will look toward this one, to the afflicted, and to the contrite of spirit, even trembling at My Word. Isaiah 66:2 h) Jesus saw Nathaniel coming toward him and said about him, "Look, a true Israelite, in whom there is no falsehood!" Nathaniel said to him, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered him, "Before Philip called you, while you were under the fig tree, I saw you." Nathaniel replied to him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!" Jesus said to him, "Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than that." Then he said to him, "Truly, truly I tell all of you, you will see heaven standing open and the angels of God going up and coming down to the Son of Man." John 1:47-51 i) "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?" Jesus said to him, "'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the greatest and most important commandment. The second is like it:

'You must love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commandments." Matthew22:36-40 j) I am giving you a new commandment to love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. John13:34

k) He that has My commandments and keeps them, it is that one who loves Me; and the one that loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I shall love him and will reveal Myself to him. Jesus answered and said to him, If anyone loves Me, he will keep My Word, and My Father shall love him. And We will come to him and will make a dwelling place with him. John 14:21 & 23

2. Father, we pray that You would reveal the hope of Your calling to us. We want to understand the gift You have given us by calling us to Yourself in Christ Jesus. You have made us holy and blameless in Your presence. Show us what it means to be hid in Christ and all that we receive in our adoption as sons. Because You love us, in Him we have redemption and forgiveness of our sins. You have lavished grace, wisdom and understanding upon us. We are destined for your praise and glory. Make this the meditation of our hearts Lord. Help us understand the magnitude of this great gift; the wonders of the hope of Your calling. In Jesus’ name we ask that You would reveal the hope of Your calling
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! He has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm, just as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless in his presence. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself through Jesus Christ, according to the pleasure of his will, so that we would praise his glorious grace that he gave us in the Beloved One. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our offenses, according to the riches of God's grace that he lavished on us, along with all wisdom and understanding, when he made known to us the secret of his will. This was according to his plan that he set forth in Christ to usher in the fullness of the times and to gather up all things in Christ, both things in heaven and things on earth. In Christ we were also chosen when we were predestined according to the purpose of the one who does everything according to the intention of his will, so that we who had already fixed our hope on Christ might live for his praise and glory. Ephesians 1:3-12 For you have not received a spirit of slavery that leads you into fear again. Instead, you have received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba! Father!" Romans 8:15 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. Hebrews 6:19-20 Dear Friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when He appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 1John 3:2

3. Father we want to know the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in the saints. Help us understand the fullness of the Your portion in receiving us. You have rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to Jesus’ kingdom. You are our portion, our great reward. And we belong to You. Lord, make us Your great delight; worthy of Your calling. We want to bring You great pleasure.

You are rich in mercy; rich in grace and we want to know the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in the saints. In Jesus’ name show us the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in the saints
Within your temple, O God, we meditate on your unfailing love. Like your name, O God, your praise reaches to the ends of the earth; your right hand is filled with righteousness. Mount Zion rejoices, the villages of Judah are glad because of your judgments. Walk about Zion, go around her, count her towers, consider well her ramparts; view her citadels that you may tell of them to the next generation. For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end. Psalm 48: 9-14

. . . Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:12 4. Lord, we want to know the exceeding greatness of Your power toward us who believe. Give us eyes to recognize Your sustaining power and heart toward us who believe in Jesus. You are the One who created the Heavens and Earth. You call the stars by name and number the hairs on our heads. In You we live and move and have our being. You have seated us with Christ Jesus in the heavenly realm and You have shown us that love is as strong as death. We stand amazed and ask that we may truly understand the exceeding greatness of Your power toward us who believe. In Jesus’ name would You reveal the exceeding greatness of Your power toward us who believe
Lift up your eyes on high And see who has created these {stars,} The One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of {His} power, Not one {of them} is missing. Isaiah 40:26 Both riches and honor {come} from You, and You rule over all, and in Your hand is power and might; and it lies in Your hand to make great and to strengthen everyone. 1 Chronicles 29:12 The God who made the world and all things in it, this One being Lord of Heaven and of earth, does not dwell in handmade temples, nor is served by hands of men, as having need of anything. For He is giving life and breath and all things to all. And He made every nation of men of one blood, to live on all the face of the earth, ordaining fore-appointed seasons and boundaries of their dwelling, to seek the Lord, if perhaps they might feel after Him and might find Him, though indeed He not being far from each one of us. For in Him we live and move and exist, as also some of the poets among you have said, For we are also His offspring. Then being offspring of God, we ought not to suppose that the Godhead is like gold or silver or stone, engraved by art and the imagination of man. Acts 17:24-29 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of his great love for us even when we were dead because of our offenses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), raised us up with him, and seated us with him in the heavenly realm in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might display the limitless riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-7

Mike Bickle’s Notes :Prayer for revelation of Jesus’ beauty that we might walk in our calling and destiny by God’s power 17 That the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the
knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may KNOW (experience) what is the hope of His calling (assurance/clarity of God’s call for our life) what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints (our destiny as Jesus’ inheritance), 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power… (Eph. 1:17-19)
