Series: "Praying with Paul" - Ephesians 1:1-23 - A prayer to know!

Tomorrow Stefano will start a new series: "Praying with Paul", in which we'll engage with Paul's prayers in his letters.

For this sermon: "A prayer to know",
we'll engage with Ephesians 1:1-23.

o introduce this sermon we'll interact with the question: what did spur you to pray and for what did you pray the last time you prayed suddenly and spontaneously?

These will then be the three main points: 
1. A prayer to know the person of Christ. 
2. A prayer to know the work of Christ.
3. A prayer to know the power of Christ.

"I do not cease to give thanks for you, 
remembering you in my prayers, that the 
God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him"
Ephesians 1:16-17 (ESV)


To dig deeper in the themes we'll engage with in this series,
Stefano will encourage the church to read and interact 
with the book of  D. A. Carson: 
A Call to Spiritual Reformation: Priorities from Paul and His Prayers
which is available in Italian.
