🙏🎧 Journey With Prayer | Flourishing in the Fullness of Giftings


Leading Differently Together | APEST Series Introduction


ESV (English Standard Version)

"And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ."

NLT (New Living Translation)

"Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ."

NIV (New International Version)

"So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."


  • Reflect

Consider how the diverse giftings mentioned in Ephesians 4:11-13 contribute to the health and unity of the body of Christ.

  • Engage

Have conversations with individuals in your community who exercise these gifts and learn from their experiences and insights.

  • Pray

  1. Pray for the church to recognize and embrace the diverse giftings within the body of Christ, fostering unity and maturity in the faith.

  2. Pray for individuals to be open to the Holy Spirit's leading and the discovery of their unique giftings, that they may joyfully and humbly serve their communities.

  3. Pray for personal transformation, asking God to renew your heart and mind and guide you in embracing and expressing the diverse giftings within you and within the body of Christ.
