Paul’s letter reveals a wonderful outline of how you can pray for someone else;

  1. Pray for God to fill the person you’re praying for with the knowledge of God’s will for their life in this moment they are in (vs9)
  2. Pray that they would have not their own wisdom or the wisdom of the world but rather Holy Spirit inspired wisdom and understanding in their life circumstance (vs9)
  3. Pray the above SO THAT the one you’re praying for can walk in a way that honours God (vs10)
  4. SO THAT they may please God in every way by bearing fruit in all they do and (vs10)
  5. And SO THAT they may grow in their personal knowledge of God (vs10)
  6. Pray that they may be strengthened with God’s power in the midst of their current situation not that they just be ejected out of it, pray this SO THAT they may have great endurance & joy in the midst of their circumstances (vs11)
  7. Pray all of this SO THAT they may give thanks to God who qualified them to share in the inheritance He has for us, and give thanks to God who rescued us who believe from satan’s kingdom, and brought us into the Kingdom of Jesus, our Redeemer, the one who purchased our forgiveness…(vs12-13). Amen.
