Biblical Prayer 2

Jay Forrest

For this reason,
    I bow my knees to you
Father of my Lord Jesus Christ,
    from whom the whole family
    in Heaven and Earth is named,
that you would grant me,
    according to the riches of your glory,
to be strengthened with might
    through your Spirit in the inner being,
that Christ may dwell in my heart
    through faith;
that I, being rooted and grounded in love,
    may be able to comprehend
with all the saints
    what is the width and length and depth and height -
to know the love of Christ
    which passes knowledge;
    that I may be filled with all of your fullness.
In Jesus' name, amen.

(Eph 3:14-19)
