Bible prayer for the church forever

The Apostle Paul gave us this ongoing prayer in his letter to the Christians at Ephesus: As I kneel before the Father from Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, I pray for the riches of God’s glory to empower you with strength in the Holy Spirit, deep within your inner being where Christ lives in your hearts of faith bound to His boundless love, and I pray for you – and all of the Family of God – to comprehend how wide, how long, how high and deep is the love of Christ and how incomprehensible is the full measure of God’s endless love endlessly filling you. Now to Him, Who is able to do immeasurably more than we imagine or ask as His power works within us – to Him be Glory in the church Body of Christ and the Family of God for every generation, forever and ever. Amen. © 2013, Mary Harwell Sayler , prayer-a-phrase poem from Ephesians 3:14-20 ~~
