Praying Like Paul

Rachel Starr Thomson@ reviews the prayers of Paul. She notes:

May You Be Strong Within

In Ephesians 3:14-16, Paul began one of his most beautiful prayers for the church.

"For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man."
May Your Love Abound

Paul prayed, "That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God" (Eph. 3:17-19).

The Lord Be With You

Ephesians 3:18, "that we might be filled with all the fullness of God."
