The one who prays.....

As I have been reading through Ephesians 3.14-21 one thing that has just hit me like a ton of bricks is that this is a prayer. Now, I know that might not be earth shattering to some of you ----- but to me that is of utmost importance. Notice how Paul prays. Paul prays for the Ephesians strength, that they might have power in the Spirit and that Christ may dwell in their hearts. In my Christian Theology class Dr. J. Kameron Carter said: "the one who prays is a theologian and the theologian is one who prays." Paul is a theologian ---- a praying theologian. How do we live out our Christianity in prayer? Are we a people that pray? And how do we pray?
