Ephesians 1:3 - "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,"
One of the most difficult areas of prayer comes when you want to pray for someone, but you don't know just what to pray except, "God bless_______." Actually, that prayer means very little.
Ephesians 1:3 tells us that the Father has already released every blessing to us in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. So, a better way to pray would be, "Father, give them revelation and understanding of all the blessings You have provided for them."
Think about what happened when you were saved. God didn't have to do something at that time to "save" you. He did the "saving" 2000 years ago. You just had to receive Jesus as Savior. The same thing is true with all the other benefits Jesus bought and paid for with His Life's blood at Calvary!
