Today, pray this prayer over your life that Paul wrote as a guide for believers. Trust the Lord to give you the strength to put down roots that go deeply into who He is. It is found in Ephesians 3:14-21 and taken from The Passion Translation…
Father of my Lord Jesus, the Messiah, I come humbly in awe before you, the perfect Father of every father and child in heaven and on the earth. I pray that You would unveil within me the unlimited riches of Your glory and favor until Your supernatural strength floods my innermost being with Your divine might and explosive power. Then, by constantly using my faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside of me, and the resting place of Your love will become the very source and root of my life. Then I will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences—the great magnitude and excellence of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is Your love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Your endless love that is beyond measurement and transcends my understanding—this extravagant love pours into me until I am filled to overflowing with the your fullness O God! I never doubt Your mighty power to work in me and accomplish all this. You will achieve infinitely more than my greatest requests, my most unbelievable dreams, and exceed my wildest imaginations! You will outdo them all, for Your miraculous power constantly energizes me. Now I offer up to You, God, all the glorious praise that rises from every church in every generation through Jesus Christ—and all praises that will yet be manifest through time and eternity. Amen!
