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