Ephesians 2:4-5

Dear Father, ruler of heaven and earth,

When you raised up Christ, you raised me out of my dead state as well. You set me on a throne of honor with Christ in the heavenly places.

What you did showed the immeasurable riches of your grace even to me - just as you showed your kindness to those called first - through Christ!

Thank you for being so very, very gracious to me! Salvation by grace just by trusting in you!

In the name of Jesus and by his authority I boldly ask you to make of us the completely holy people that you intend as your inheritance. Amen.
