Heart Posture in Prayer #787

14  For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15  from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named… (Ephesians 3:14–15, NKJV)

In Ephesians 3:14-21, the apostle Paul petitioned God the Father concerning several things on behalf of the Ephesians. We begin to look at his prayer by noticing the posture of Paul’s heart. When he prayed it was with reverent humility. He regarded God as our Progenitor. We live because of Him, therefore, He deserves and commands our respect. When you pray, approach God fully aware that your very existence comes from and depends upon Him. Like parents who listen to a respectful child, our heavenly Father listens to His respectful children. He  has the knowledge, the power and the desire to hear and answer His children’s prayers. Show Him respect and remember your place before Him. Christians who humbly respect God have firm confidence that He hears and answer our prayers.
