Getting grounded in the love of God

I’m asking God to gift us the riches of His glory, so we will be given Inner strength and power through His Spirit, and Christ will live in us through faith. And I pray our roots will spread deeply into His love, so we - and all of God’s children - can begin to glimpse how wide, how long, how high, how deep is His love for us. Then we will know Christ’s love reaches far beyond our understanding and fills us wholly with our Holy God.

Praying for God to empower the church

Kneeling before the Father – from Whom every family in heaven and earth has its true Family Name – let's pray for God’s great glory to give us the power to be strengthened in our spirit through the Holy Spirit. Let's pray for Christ to quicken our hearts with faith, so our lives will be built on unshakable love. And pray for all of God’s people to be fortified by Christ’s love, so we can see how wide, how long, how high, how deep His Fortress of Love really is. For Christ’s love is greater than anything we can know! And His love fills us with God. Now to Him Who Is Able to do far more than we can ask or imagine, let's let His power be at work in us, the Body of Christ, and may we, as one church, bring glory to God for ever and ever.

Thank God for being with us!

Psalm 138: 1-3, 7-8 With all my heart, I give You thanks, O LORD. Before the heavenly beings, I sing Your praise. I bow down to You toward Your holy temple and give thanks to You for the love and truth in Your name – Your name, Your word above all! On the day I call, You answer me and increase the strength in my soul. Even if I find myself in the middle of trouble, You protect me from the anger of others. Your stretch out Your hand to me, and the rightness of Your hand delivers me. The Lord will fulfill His purposes for me, for Your steadfast love endures forever, O LORD, and You will not let go the work placed in Your hands. © 2015, Mary Harwell Sayler prayer-a-phrased today’s reading in Psalm 138 from many translations found on Bible Gateway. …
