In her Bible Study On Bended Knee, Crickett Keeth asks what it means to pray “according to the riches of his glory (Ephesians 3:16)?”*
It means we pray expecting God “to do far more abundantly than all we ask or think (Ephesians 3:21).”
Here’s why: “The greater a person’s wealth, the greater his gift must be to qualify for giving according to his wealth. For God to give according to the riches of His glory is absolutely staggering, because His riches are limitless, completely without bounds.”**
