Ephesians 4:14-16

Dear Father, Giver of life and growth,

We bless you, Father, because what you want for each of us your children is that we may no longer remain immature children but become grown-up children, no longer tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of strange teachings, by the cunning of men with their crafty and deceitful schemes.

Thank you, Father, rather for calling us to speak the truth in love and to grow up in every way in him who is the head, into Christ.

Thank you for putting Christ into us and us into Christ so that the whole body, with each part working properly and joined and knit together by every connection with which it is supplied, makes bodily growth and builds itself up in love.

In Jesus' name. Amen.
