This week we’ll be spending our lunch hours in focused prayer, asking God to work in our hearts to show us more of him, to reveal our sins to us, and for us to meditate on the goodness of God in our lives and respond. Each day we will provide some guidance to help you pray. Our hope is that these would be a spring board into prayer and that our hearts would be open to God’s leading of our time.

Monday

Let’s pray with Paul that God would open our hearts and minds to know and to experience him in greater, richer depth this week as we meditate on the work of Christ on the cross.

15 For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, 16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might 20 that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.

Ephesians 1:15-21

God, by your great mercy please open up the eyes of our hearts to see you and know you more. Lord, please reveal to us how marvelous and majestic you are and prepare our hearts to grow closer to you this week as we approach the celebration of our Risen Savior Jesus Christ.
