Leadership Lessons from Ephesians: A Leader’s Prayer

Reading through the Bible in a year has led me to Ephesians 3 where Paul has an incredible prayer that he prays for God’s people. One of Paul’s gifts that isn’t always appreciated is the incredible prayers that he prays.

We think of Paul as the grace guy, the reach the Gentiles guy. He’s that and more. He’s a prayer warrior who raises up prayer warriors.

Ephesians 3:14-21 is his prayer, and my favorite part is when he says in Ephesians 3:20, Glory belongs to God, whose power is at work in us. By this power he can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.

That verse inspires me to pray, “Lord, stretch my imagination.” If God can do more than I can ask or imagine (and He can!), then I pray stretch my imagination.

Walt Disney is credited with coming up with his imagineers. Go to a Disney park and you see the power of imagineers at work. It’s one of my favorite parts of going to a Disney resort.

But go t0 a church where people live out love for God and for their community and world, those imagineers are ones stretched by God impacting eternity.

Where are you praying, “Lord stretch my imagination today?”
