Refreshed: The Study of Ephesians – Ephesians 6

Ephesians 6

Two Prayers:

Lord, you have called us both to serve and to be served.  So let us serve with humility and joy, and allow ourselves to be served with a spirit of gentleness and gratitude.  Bring wholeness and dignity to all who live in our society.  When we are called on to serve, give us a vision that it is you we serve; and when we are called on to receive, grant us an awareness that through your servants, you, Lord Jesus Christ, are serving us.

We thank you, Father, that you have not left your church defenseless. Rather, you have called us to be the battle-ground of prayer and have fully equipped us for the task.  Now, strengthen us each day to carry forward the gospel of Christ as we wage war against the evil one.  Teach us to preach, to pray and to persevere’ and as the dust settles after each victory, may we be found standing our ground, prepared for the next foray into battle.
