Paul's Prayer

In my journey of reading the entire bible I have kept a little "journal" of sorts. I write down scriptures that stick out to me, or speak something to me. I like to go back through it sometimes because there is some many encouraging verse's and stories in it. I did today, and came by Paul's prayer in his letter to the church in Ephesus. I thought I would share it.

Ephesians 3:14-19 "When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit.
And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God."

I'm sure you've probably read or heard this scripture before, but it does something to me the more I read it, and the more I pray it over myself and my wife. I encourage you to read it over and over, and I'm telling you something happens. I want my roots to go down deep in the soil of God's marvelous love. It is a marvelous love! We really don't fully understand how all encompassing God's love is! There is fullness of life in his love. FULLNESS OF LIFE!! I can and should have fullness of life regardless of what is going on simply because there is power in God's marvelous love for us! So lets have it!
