Prayer for Spiritual Strength

Ephesians 3

14 For this reason I bow my knees to the r Father 1 of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, s according to the riches of His glory, t to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in u the inner man, 17 v that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, w being rooted and grounded in love, 18 x may be able to comprehend with all the saints y what is the width and length and depth and height - 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled z with all the fullness of God.

20 Now a to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly b above all that we ask or think, c according to the power that works in us, 21 d to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
