Paul ends his prayer in Ephesians with praise. He praises God for His power and ability to do “infinitely more than we can imagine.” He praises the Glory of God forever. After all that he has said to the Ephesians, reminding them that they are the body of Christ and admonishing them to get along with each other, Paul ends his letter by reminding them of how great and marvelous is the Lord. This doxology is a model for our own prayers. Let us not get so caught up in our petitions that we fail to give God the praise He deserves.
What grand “Kingdom dreams” do you have for God’s glory? What incredible ideas can you imagine requesting that God would bring to fruition? What are your expectations of Heaven with God? Now that you have stretched mind, challenged your imagination, and loaded up your expectations, are you ready for some down to earth truth straight from the Marvel of Heaven? God is able to do far more than any of that. His power is at work in us to do His glorious will and accomplish His eternal purposes. So let’s not set our sights too low and expect too little. Live for His glory and expect to see it at work in your life.
And we pray:
Hallelujah Father!!! Your Essence is my ALL!!! Glory, glory, glory Hallelujah!!!

Lord, You are on High, Hallelujah Amen. You have redeemed me and I praise You. You have blessed me far beyond my imagination and continue to bless me in ways I cannot possibly understand. I thank You and praise You. I give You all honor and all glory, forever and ever. Amen.
