Ephesians 3:14-21

"For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the
fulness of God.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen."
Ephesians 3:14-21

This is amazingly cool... the love of Christ is beyond anything we can know or imagine... God blesses us incredibly more than we ask or imagine... this prayer makes me want to be an Ephesian. :)
I especially like the steps here... 1. I ask that you will be strengthened by the spirit, so that 2. you will have faith and Christ will be in your hearts, so that 3. you will be grounded in love, so that 4. you will be able to imagine, at least partially, the love God has for you, so that you might be filled with all the fulness of God. again, it comes back to being filled... isn't that amazing? Filled with the fulness of God. Some days you can almost feel what that is like, but it is beyond anything we can feel or imagine here... and there can be no emptiness left in our lives, anywhere. This prayer is my prayer for you, today.
