READ BY LEADER:

​May we now open this prayer session by praying all the slash prayers?  These are prayers that the Apostle Paul prayed for different church families. We've slashed out the personal pronoun so we will replace it with a person for whom we wish to pray. Can we have five  volunteers, each praying one of the passages until all are prayed?  I will begin with Ephesians 1:16-19 and names of three people to my left here in this prayer session.  I will mention them where the slash is located. (Portfolio of Scripture Slash Prayers, Page 17)

NOTES:

Five volunteers each pray one of the slash prayers until all are prayed, starting wth the Leader.  Each one will name three persons to their left were the slash is located.

READ BY DESIGNATED NOTE READER:

​Since God intends to answer these prayers you will be in awe of what He is intending to do in us. 

Slash Prayers

NOTES:

​When praying, insert the person or group in place of the slash "/".

READ BY A VOLUNTEER: Ephesians 1:16-19 (King James Version)

(I cease not to give thanks for you, making
mention of you in my prayers;)  I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto / the spirit of wisdom and revelation
in the knowledge of Him:  The eyes of / understanding being enlightened; that / may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power.

Ephesians 3:14-19 (King James Version)

(For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named).  I pray Father, that You would grant /, according to the riches of
his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in / hearts by faith; that /, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that / might be filled with all the fulness of God.

Philippians 1:9-11 (King
James Version)

And this I pray, that / love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; That / may approve things that are excellent; that / may be
sincere and without offense till the Day of Christ.  Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

Colossians 1:9-12 (King
James Version)

Father I do not cease to pray for /, and to desire that / might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That / might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and long-suffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

2 Thessalonians 1:11-12
(King James Version)

I pray always for you, that our God would count / worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness, and the work of faith with power:  That the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in /, and / in him, according to the Grace of Our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
