For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Prayer: Almighty God, You, at this time, taught the hearts of Your faithful people by sending to them the light of Your Holy Spirit: grant to us by the same Spirit to have a right judgement in all things and always to rejoice in His holy comfort; through the merits of Christ Jesus our Saviour, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
