The Apostle Hits His Knees for Us

Eph 3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Eph 3:15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
Eph 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
Eph 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
Eph 3:18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
Eph 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Eph 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Eph 3:21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Paul's prayer for the Ephesians in chapter 3 brings me tremendous joy, for this inspired prayer reaches across the years, assuring us that God wills the same things for us today.

The prayer points:
*That God would grant strength by His Spirit for our inner man
*That Christ would dwell in our hearts by faith.
*That we would comprehend just how comprehensive His love is for us.
*That we would fully know His unknowable love.
*That we would be filled with the complete fulness of God.

Shall we pray these things for each other as we struggle through these difficult days?

No doubt that the key is in prayer and everything else is the will of God.
The promises of God are written, the grace of Jesus is shed and the Holy Spirit dwells in us ....¿ that we fear?
