I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. 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.
– Ephesians 3:14-19
What a beautifully deep prayer St. Paul prays…for us. We need to reflect deeply on what St. Paul prays…and make his prayer our own.
The Holy Spirit will then help us focus on the Cross of Christ and make us realise how that Cross illustrates the width, length, height and depth…in other words, the immensity…of God’s love for us.
I fall to my knees and pray to You, Almighty Father,
Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.
I pray that from Your glorious, unlimited resources
You will empower me with inner strength through Your Holy Spirit.
O glorious God,
I pray that Jesus will make His home in my heart as I trust in Him.
May my roots grow down into Your love and keep me strong.
And may I have the power to understand,
how wide, how long, how high, and how deep Jesus’ love is.
I pray that I may experience the love of Jesus,
though I know it is too great for me to ever fully understand.
Then I will be made complete
with all the fullness of life and power that comes from You, O God.
Jesus, thank You for Your love! Amen.
