God's Holy Fire: 'Power on the Inside!'

Sunday, November 17, 2024

I pray that out of [the Father's] glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, ...
— Ephesians 3:16 NIV

Key Thought

Years ago, a good friend made a graphic similar to the "intel inside"® branding on computers. It read, "Spirit Inside!" Yes, the power within us that moves us in the direction of Jesus is the Holy Spirit. So one of the greatest things we can do to empower those we love to live for Jesus is to pray Paul's prayer for them, and then let them know that we are praying this prayer for them! And so we will pray that prayer today.

Today's Prayer

O Father, today I pray Paul's prayer for several people I love. I pray that out of your glorious riches you strengthen these precious people with power through your Spirit in their hearts. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
