Praying Ephesians 3:16-19 {Heart Connect}

"I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources 
He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit.

Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. 
Your roots will grow down into God's love, and keep you strong.

And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, 
how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. 

May you experience the love of Christ,
 though it is too great to understand fully. 

Then you will be made complete with all the fullness 
of life and power that comes from God."

So powerful and life-giving to pray these words over others, and also paraphrasing the words to pray them over ourselves, as well. Pausing our busyness, reading these words slowly, from the heart ...

  1. Love this. Praying the Scriptures - powerful, filling and uplifting.

  2. An amazing passage to pray over our children and grandchildren. I am also going to use it at our next staff meeting on Tuesday to encourage our leadership. Thanks for this post. Aunt Judi
