A Prayer that works for family and church alike

Praying_for_others Driving to an early morning meeting at 6am today, I recalled one my favorite prayers and begin praying it over my family and over the leaders of our church.

"For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name.  I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.  And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know that love that surpasses knowledge — that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."  Ephesians 3:14-19

In place of you and your, I inserted the names of family members and the names of our church staff.
