What a gift this prayer must have been to the community of faith in Ephesus. Paul has taken note of the depth of their faith and the way their faith is being lived out in the way they love “all the saints”. I would imagine this means they are caring for those who are a part of their community and for those who are not. This is a church that is truly operating as the body of Christ – the voice, the hands, and the heart of Christ for the world.
Who are the people in whom you see a great depth of faith? In what ways do they live out their faith? Have you ever prayed that God would continue to nurture, strengthen, and enliven their faith? Imagine what that might mean to someone to hear that you appreciate their example of faith and that you are praying that God would continue to be at work within them and through them.
Offer that prayer to God today and find a way to let that person know about your prayer for them.
