The intercessory prayer is something that is less and less practiced by today’s Christians. Yes, they pray, and at times pray a lot, but often for personal needs only. We should bring our personal needs to God, and should have personal time of fellowship with Christ in prayer. However, our passage is introducing us to a different kind of prayer. Apostle Paul’s prayer for believers in Ephesus will teach us the principles of the purpose driven intercessory prayer that glorifies and honors God.
