Paul’s prayer (chapter 1)

Paul said that he had heard of their faith.  He remembered them in his prayers.  He prayed that God would give them a spirit of wisdom.  He wanted them to get a revelation about knowledge of Jesus Christ, so that their hearts might be enlightened.  They had hope in their inheritance.  The power of God has been given to them.  God showed his power when he raised Jesus Christ from the dead.  Jesus Christ now sits at the right hand of God.  Christ is above everyone, the past, the present, and the future.  Jesus is the head of all things in the church, which is his body.
