"For All Who Are Faithful In Christ Jesus"

Today, as we are only a few days away from beginning another new year I am drawn to a prayer that is found in Ephesians. It was written by Paul to as he put it ...To the saints who are faithful in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 1:2.) It is also my heart, my prayer, for you, the saints who are faithful in Christ Jesus in the earth today.  Like Paul, it is my hearts cry for you as you grow in Him in the year to come!


For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and the length and the depth and the height ---- to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with ALL the fulness of God.

I give thanks that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe.

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end.

Amen and God Bless!!!
