TOPIC: THREE SIMPLE WAYS TO ENHANCE YOUR PRAYER LIFE (II)

*Read: Ephesians 3:14-21*
*MEMORISE: _For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ_ (Ephesians 3:14).*

*EXPOSITION*
Not only that we should pray with a reason, for that specifies why we pray. And not only must we pray with an attitude, as kneeling in prayer is recognising how great God is and how great the issue we want to talk to Him about is. But, also, we must:

Pray with a focus *(Eph. 3:14,15).* What do you focus when you pray? On what you want or need? Paul reminds us that when we pray, our focus isn’t on what we need. Our focus should be on who we’re talking to – the heavenly Father. That’s the important thing in prayer. _For this reason I bow my knees before the Father._ What that literally says in the Greek language is, “Before the Father, from whom every fatherhood gets its name.” It is saying, “God the Father is the Father of all fathers. I’m focusing on Him in my life.”

The dad of a three-year-old boy was promoted in the English military. He and others were at the promotion ceremony. The little boy saw them get up and say, “Now this man is going to be the High Marshal Admiral of Her Majesty’s Grand Fleet.” And everybody applauded. The little boy leans over to his mom and said, “Do you think he’ll mind if I still call him ‘Daddy’?” Jesus taught is to pray: *Our Father in heaven (Matt. 6:9).*

As you focus on God in your prayers today, be aware that He doesn’t mind, if you call Him Daddy. That expresses the closeness that you have with Him.

*PRAYER POINTS*
*1.* Thank God for the Holy Spirit who helps you to pray in accordance with God’s will.
*2.* Express your appreciation to God for giving you the privilege of knowing Him as your ‘Daddy’.
*3.* Pray that each time you go on your knees to pray, your focus will be on nothing else but God Himself.

*EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: 1 Samuel 27:6 – 30:21; Luke 22:9 – 22:30*
