Paul prays for his readers. He does not them to walk in the dark, but to live with clarity, hope, and strength. His prayer not only thanks God for his ongoing work in them, but also outlines several requests. Knowing they are in a spiritual battle, he uses prayer to bolster them. Prayer does this. Ultimately, his intercession centers on the idea of clarity. They needed it. We need it. Clarity about our identity, destiny, capacity, and Jesus's victory are essential to walking in the light.
