Steal the Apostle Paul's High-Leverage Prayer (May 9, 2023)
Tuesday, May 9, 2023
Welcome to the Royal Brew Letter ... the only eLetter that totally enjoys getting out and experiencing natural photobiomodulation. For total wellness! Aka, sunlight. Even eLetters want to be well.
Be sure to read about how they are coming after our kids at the end of the letter. And how we must raise a standard.
Praying potent, inspired prayers to move things
I have a super high value for the Apostle Paul’s prayer at the beginning of his letter to the believers in Ephesus. I find myself praying it often. And I can see the benefits.
It's a high-leverage prayer investment to see things moved that heaven wants to move.
Here's what we focused on in the first part of this series.:
- Use your breath and pray God-breathed scripture back to him
- Be smart: ask for a "spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ"
- You gotta know the King to know how the Kingdom works
Access knowledge about anything
There’s even more. The knowledge of Christ also includes a sphere of information and knowledge which emanates from Christ.
We have access to all wisdom and the highest information—about anything and everything! This can be practical and concrete.
See how the Creator revealed to George Washington Carver the mysteries of the peanut and other crops, transforming American agriculture in the 1800’s.
“In whom [Christ] are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3 NASB).
Everything is within the sphere of Christ
The Greek in this prayer has the sense of the spirit of wisdom and revelation which operates within the sphere of our knowledge of Christ.
This is a knowledge of who he is as a member of the Godhead. But it’s also our relational knowledge of Christ … our relationship with Christ deepens.
I take it to mean this: as a Christ-follower, everything we want and need to know is wrapped up in who Christ is to us personally.
Relationships. That opportunity. Personal finance. That initiative. Issues in society and culture. Wellness. Etc.
It's all within the sphere of Christ.
Let me say it this way. Grow in your relationship with Christ. Cultivate that relational knowledge with him. Then take to him your questions, challenges, and opportunities and ask him for higher knowledge about it all.
This is the 2nd part in this little series on Paul's powerful apostolic prayer in Ephesians. Look for the concluding part this Thursday.
Jesus: "Leave the kids alone! Let them come to me."
This demonic world system is after kids ...
Whether it's transgenderism, Disney, pedophilia, radicalized school curricula, or a voice like Chelsea Clinton promoting "The Big Catch-up", a new initiative by WHO.
She says we need to stop stripping away public health emergency powers and get back to mRNA vaccinating "as many kids as possible."
Hear Vladimir Lenin, the Russian communist revolutionary in the early 20th century: "Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted."
This agenda is alive and well.
The core worldview and value system of children are set by the age of 9 or 10.
Here's the hope for generations already lost. They can be regenerated -- born again in Christ. A 2nd childhood is possible. Jesus said we must be as children to enter his Kingdom. (This offer is for all of us!)
Open your eyes to what's happening and it's blatantly obvious they are coming after the kids. While we exhaust ourselves with soccer or whatever.
Jesus said, "Leave the children alone, and do not ]forbid them to come to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Then he touched them with blessing. See Matthew 19.
Children are the "heritage of the Lord" (Ps 127). They belong to Christ.
That's what the Body of Christ must say. "Let them alone!"
Then allow the person and hands of Jesus to touch kids in a holy way ... via us.
Everyone can pray. It always starts there. Then what can you practically do? Be a change catalyst in your circle of influence.
