Sharing a Prayer for Spiritual Strength
found in Ephesians chapter 3.
Because, eventually, we all must learn to find our Strength in Him.
Galatians 2 says this:
For through the Law I died to the Law,
so that I might live to God.
I have been crucified with Christ;
and it is no longer I who live,
but Christ lives in me;
and the life which I now live in the flesh
I live by faith in the Son of God,
who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
I do not nullify the grace of God,
for if righteousness comes through the Law,
then Christ died needlessly.
In Ephesians chapter 2 we find a bit of an introduction
to the concept of understanding God is our Strength,
the foundation on which we are being built and growing in, daily.
So then you are no longer strangers and aliens,
but you are fellow citizens with the saints,
and are of God’s household,
having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone,
in whom the whole building,
being fitted together,
is growing into a holy temple in the Lord,
in whom you also are being built together
into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.
Prayer for Spiritual Strength
For this reason
I bow my knees before the Father,
from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,
that according to the riches of His glory
He may grant you to be strengthened
with power through His Spirit
in your inner being,
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—
that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
may have strength to comprehend
with all the saints
the breadth and length and height and depth,
and to know the love of Christ
that surpasses knowledge,
that you may be filled
with all the fullness of God.
Now to Him
who is able to do
far more abundantly
than all that we ask or think,
according to the power at work within us,
to Him be glory
in the church and in Christ Jesus
throughout all generations,
forever and ever.
