Jesus' Mercy Changes Me, We and the World

Prayers from the Bible

Paul’s letters make up most of the New Testament besides the Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. We learn how to follow Jesus and who we are in Christ from his writings. There are several prayers and my favorite is from Ephesians 3:14-21. It is meant to encourage and affirm us. Reading it regularly gives strength, courage, depth and confims our identity. Make it a practice to let this prayer do that for you.

Prayer for the Readers

14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family[b] in heaven and on earth takes its name. 16 I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, 17 and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. 18 I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21

Grace be with you,
