I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.
This is a wonderful and amazing prayer that we should pray for ourselves, our loved ones, and all the children of God scattered across the world. Let us pray with sincere and fervent hearts, “Father, by Your vast glory of unlimited resources, empower us with inner strength and courage for this life through Your Spirit in us. May Christ be truly at home in our hearts, settled in and in control as we put all our trust in Him. Lord, help us to grow deep in Your love, keeping us strong in You. Grant to us the ability to grasp hold (as we should since we are Yours) of the infinite greatness of Your love. May we ever more fully experience Your love for us in Christ, though we will never be able to fully understand it. God, make us complete in You, filled with Your power and presence till we are overflowing with You. To You almighty, wonderful God, who is able to do so much more and greater things than we can even begin to imagine – to You be all praise and glory in and through us, Your children throughout all generations to the very end of time! Amen.”
