Praying the right thing will always grant you speedy answers to your prayers. So, today I am going to give some important verses of the scriptures to pray that will change your life forever.
Two important things you must always do as a child of God are to study the word of God and pray. And God said that when we pray the scriptures (the will of God), He hears us and we are assured of receiving our heart desires (1 John 15:13-14). Therefore, it’s important to know the scriptures to pray for every issue in life. However, there are some verses, which when you consistently pray will grant you access to other scriptures to use in praying for issues. Also, they empower you for victory in life. These verses are in Ephesians 1:17-20.
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places – Ephesians 1:17-20 (NKJV).
These are important verses of the scriptures to pray that will change your life indeed. This is because they equip you with all you need to succeed as a Christian. So, when you consistently pray these verses you will see a lot of changes in your life.

Revelation of Christ
You gain knowledge of the mystery of Christ, for Christ is the wisdom and power of God (1 Corinthians 1:24). And the knowledge of the Lord will give you the true picture of God’s plan and purpose for humanity. Also, you will know the power and authority you have as a believing Christian.
Enlightened eyes of understanding
This prayer will cause the Holy Spirit to flood you with light, leading to a deeper understanding of God and His word. And it will in return build up your faith in the Lord, enabling you to please God. (Hebrews 11:6). Also, you will receive speedy answers to your prayers.
Knowledge of the benefits of being a child of God
So, wisdom, revelation, and understanding enable you to know the hope of His calling: the hope of His salvation, which you didn’t work for. It is also hope for great expectations, blessings, and joy in Christ. Also, they cause you to know the riches of God’s glorious inheritance in the saints (His people). That is, knowing the riches of the glory of being God’s child, His possession and not the devil’s possession. Furthermore, you get to know the exceedingly great power of God, which He has made available to us His children. This mighty power of the Lord is such as the working which He worked when He raised Jesus from the dead and set Him on His right hand in heaven. And the enemy could not stop the Lord from executing His plan. This is the mighty working power of God that is also available to you His child.
You need wisdom, knowledge, and understanding as stated in the scriptures more than you can imagine. And these are truly important verses of the scriptures to pray that will change your life. So, choose today to consistently and fervently pray these verses till they manifest in you. And your Christian walk will be exciting and rewarding.
