Paul's Prayer is My Prayer

Heavenly Father I praise You for the wisdom of Your word and the fact that Your Spirit inspired men to write Your words, thoughts, and wisdom down for us to draw daily from. I build my life on the foundation of Your word, the living water from Your Spirit, and the wisdom and knowledge You have taught me through life. I praise You that my testimony is more than just that You saved me. I praise You for the hope that lies within my heart and gives me strength to make it through each day.

I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would give you, according to the riches of His glory, power to be strengthened by His Spirit in the inner man, and that Christ may dwell in Your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth and length and depth and height, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. [Ephesians 3:14-19]

Holy Spirit help me to daily pray not only for myself but for all my brothers and sisters in You, who have bonded us as a family in spirit. I ask that all of us learn to measure and be in awe of the uncomprehendableness of Your love for us. I pray that we grow in wisdom as we live, experience, learn, and taste all that You have provided for us. Help us to become the best examples of Your love and show hope to a world that has no hope. Help us to stand and reflect Your love so that the world is forced to see and face the reality of who You are and what You offer to them. Let us be as Your first church was and be a people who fast, pray with conviction, and believe so strongly that we see the impossible become possible because of You, our God and our Redeemer.

Now to Him, who is able to do exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or imagine, according to the power that works in us, to Him be the glory in the church and Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen! [Ephesians 3:20&21]
