God's Prayer Power ~ Session 20
Our scripture today is: Ephesians 3:16-21
"I ask the Father in his great glory to give you the power to be strong in spirit. He will give you that strength through his Spirit. I pray that Christ will live in your hearts because of your faith. I pray that your life will be strong in love and be built on love. And I pray that you and all God’s holy people will have the power to understand the greatness of Christ’s love. I pray that you can understand how wide and how long and how high and how deep that love is. Christ’s love is greater than any person can ever know. But I pray that you will be able to know that love. Then you can be filled with the fullness of God. With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or think of. To him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus for all time, forever and ever." Amen.
What is God saying to us in our scripture today?
God will give you that strength through His Spirit. What strength? To be strong in spirit. If you read this scripture written by Paul, He is telling them He is asking the Father to give them, the people, the power to be strong in spirit. He goes on to say. . .God will give this strength through His Spirit. The Holy Spirit.
Who needs to live in our hearts?
We are to let Christ live in our hearts.
How do we do that?
We do that by our faith.
More than ever, today, we need our lives to be strong in love and to be built on love. Let us ask God to give us the power to understand the greatness of Christ's love for us and how much he truly loves us. To know how much he loves us takes us to depths we have not been. To fully grasp this love so we can be filled with the fullness of God. We need God's power working in us. We cannot comprehend how much more God can do in our lives and for us unless we have the power of God working in us.
Read the scripture this week, mediating on what you hear God saying to you. Write the words down what God is saying to you.
I come before Your throne of grace with praise and thanksgiving for all You have done for me. I bring my desires to You requesting You grant me blessings and answers according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I ask to be strengthened with might by Your Spirit in my inner man. I ask that Christ dwell in my heart by faith all the days of my life and that I be rooted and grounded in love. Let me comprehend and know how much You love me. I pray You might fill me with all the fulness of God. Do not let me become slack, or take for granted how much You love me. Amen
