The Apostle Paul writes "I kneel before the Father, from whom His whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name." Eph 3:14 (NIV)

My small group at church is currently studying Paul's letter to the Ephesians. In the passage above we learn that Paul knelt to offer prayer in a time when people stood to pray with uplifted arms as they still do at the wailing wall in Jerusalem. His kneeling emphasizes the importance of the prayer that follows in that kneeling was akin to begging. As you read Paul's prayer for the church at Ephesus, make it your prayer for your church by inserting your name and church.

I _________, a servant of Jesus Christ, to the church at SCPC. "I pray that out of [God's] 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 this love that surpasses knowledge ---that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God." Eph 3:16-19

"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, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." Eph 3:20-21
