 God is called the Father of glory here, as being its source and author. (Ephesians 1 by J.N. Darby)
 He is “the Father of glory” as being the great Head and Fountain of all heavenly blessedness, the One from whom it all came to His own name and praise. This at once lets us into the secret of the prayer. Glory is the main thought—not the only, but the most prominent, feature of the prayer. (Remarks on Ephesians 1:15-23 by W. Kelly)
 The proper meaning of the word is “the full knowledge of Him.” They already knew Him, but He prayed that they might know Him more. He wanted them to be fathers in Christ, and what constitutes a father is a deep and growing knowledge of Christ Himself. (Remarks on Ephesians 1:15-23 by W. Kelly)
 This prayer is founded on the title of “God of our Lord Jesus Christ”; that of chapter 3 on the title of “Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” There it is more communion than counsels. God is called the Father of glory here, as being its source and author. (Ephesians 1 by J.N. Darby)
