I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith (Ephesians 3:16-17a).
This is pretty much the perfect prayer.
Out of his glorious riches–God already has all you need or could ever need.
…he may strengthen you with power–It is God who does the work in you.
…through his Spirit–He has sent the Holy Spirit to teach and guide and heal and empower us.
…in your inner being–God is not concerned with outward appearances, but with the true you.
…so that Christ may dwell in your hearts–kinda the purpose of life, ya?
…through faith–without which, none of this works.
So, yeppers, a truly excellent prayer.
Who will you use it on today?
I’m pretty sure Paul won’t mind if you borrow it.
Happy Tuesday, Beloved.
