I pray ...asking God , the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you may grow in your knowledge of God. I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called - his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.
I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God's power for us who believe him.
I pray that from his glorious unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. The Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow doen into GOd's love and keep you strong. And may you have power to understand, with 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.
I pray your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ's return.
We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding.
We also pray you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father.
(from Ephesians 1, Ephesians 3, Philippians 1 and Colossians 1)
