Ephesians 1:17 (Amplified Bible)

Ephesians 1:17 (New King James Version)

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,

A. Always hold on to GOD thru prayers.

"[For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,"

Our relation with GOD is He is our FATHER and our GOD as well.

Ephesians 1:3 (Amplified Bible)

May blessing (praise, laudation, and eulogy) be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) Who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual (given by the Holy Spirit) blessing in the heavenly realm!

John 20:17 (Amplified Bible)

Jesus said to her, Do not cling to Me [do not hold Me], for I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to My brethren and tell them, I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.

The LORD JESUS has set us an example to follow, that He is totally 100% dependent on the FATHER GOD.

John 5:30 (Amplified Bible)

I am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord—but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders]. Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right (just, righteous), because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me.

John 15:5 (Amplified Bible)

I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.

ILLUSTRATION: It is interesting to note that when the disciples saw JESUS in His human form, they wanted to learn the praying styles of the LORD JESUS rather than His preaching styles. Because JESUS's prayer life exceeded His preaching life. No verse in the bible that taught us reading the disciples wanted to learn how to preach from the LORD. For preachers, take this as a role model in the LORD JESUS, you don't need to spend more time developing your preaching styles, spend more time in praying, and your preaching styles will follow.

Luke 11:1 (Amplified Bible)

THEN HE was praying in a certain place; and when He stopped, one of His disciples said to Him, Lord, teach us to pray, [just] as John taught his disciples.

ILLUSTRATION:

And The Rains Stopped

It was almost time for the "Old-fashioned Revival Hour" to go on the air. The broadcast was originating in a tin-roofed tabernacle in Waterloo, Iowa. As Dr. Charles Fuller, the dean of gospel broadcasters, stood on the platform before the microphone, a heavy rain began to fall and pound upon the tin roof, making it impossible for the broadcast to go forth with its Bible-saturated message. Dr. Fuller prayed, "Lord, if You don't stop the rain, the Old-fashioned Revival Hour will not be able to go out over the air. For Jesus' sake, please stop the rain!"
