Ephesians 3:14-16

“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, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.”


There is no question about the fact that the Apostle Paul spent time before God in prayer. Paul said to the small church at Ephesus,  “I am on my knees for you.”  Not only because they had need of certain things, but because Paul wanted to know the mind of the Lord concerning them.


Brother Branham said in the sermon, Invisible Union of the Bride of Christ, that just as a woman has a sacred trust to her virtue before her husband, so does the Bride of Jesus Christ have a sacred responsibility to prayer and to Christ. You might not be able to physically get on your knees, or at least if you did it would take another miracle to get you back up, but the truth is that we must spend time with God in prayer. Wherever it may be, or for however long, your time spent with God in prayer must be with purpose.


Paul said, “For this cause I bow my knees,”  in that he wasn’t just wasting time, he was praying with a purpose. What we may need sometimes is less formal accomplishment of our “spiritual tasks” -  such as reading the Bible and praying - and more praying and reading with the intent to get somewhere with God. The Bible says, “Let your requests be made known to Him” (Philippians 4:6).


Time spent on your knees with a purpose is what will settle your questions.

John would say, "When I was—received the Holy Ghost in my mother's womb, so I'm told. At nine years old I went to the…" Not seminary, he went, not to some school, he went out in the wilderness to live with God. Brother, that's the seminary we all need today, not so much about genealogy, but a little bit on your knees, what settles the question.
