Open the Eyes of My heart

Early in my spiritual walk I read about the importance of praying the prayer St. Paul prayed for the believers at Ephesus. One thing I noticed is that he prayed for the eyes of the heart to be opened or enlightened.

I took this advice to heart, memorized the scripture and prayed it for many years. God heard my prayer and eventually he answered it. Now I pass the prayer unto you and I pray that you will do the same.

I pray that You will give me a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the true knowledge of You. I ask You to open the eyes of my heart so I can know what you want to say to me. I want to know the hope of Your calling me, the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in me, and the surpassing greatness of Your power toward me who believes – (adapted from Ephesians 1:18-19)
