Remarkable Riches

From glorious riches,

His strength and His power;

I pray by His Spirit,

they’d be yours in this hour.

May Christ dwell in your heart,

through a powerful faith;

rooted and established,

by love and glorious grace.

May you grasp the meaning,

of how deep and how wide;

and how long and how high,

is the lavish love of Christ.

It surpasses knowledge,

with this love, may He fill,

may you freely receive,

and allow Him deeper still.

To Him who is able,

what we ask and much more;

for His power in us,

to Him be praise evermore!

(Responding to Paul’s Prayer for the Ephesians in Ephesians 3:16-21)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for who You are.  Thank You that despite our unworthiness, You come close and extend Your heart and hand, so that we might have a restored relationship with You.  Thank You that the depth and breadth of Your love is far greater than we can even fathom.  Forgive us for not receiving all that You have to offer, and help us to be empty vessels, ready and willing to be filled with all that You have for us, so that in turn, we are able to pour out Your love and grace upon all whom we meet.  May every heart be strengthened and encouraged by Your sweet Spirit, and may many come to encounter the eternal hope that is found in You alone.  Amen.
