Ephesians 3:14-19

Dear Father, transcendent in power and fullness,

I bow my knees before you, Father, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named.

According to the riches of your glory strengthen me with your might in my innermost being, that Christ may dwell in my heart through the trust I have in him.

Root me and ground me in love so that I may have the power to comprehend - along with all your holy people - what is the breadth and length and height and depth of your goodness.

In the name of Jesus Christ I honor you and ask these blessings from your hand. Amen.
