For this reason, I fall on my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth receives its character. I pray that from the treasures of his glory he will empower you with inner strength by his Spirit, so that the Messiah may live in your hearts through your trusting. Also I pray that you will be rooted and founded in love, so that you, with all God’s people, will be given strength to grasp the breadth, length, height and depth of the Messiah’s love, yes, to know it, even though it is beyond all knowing, so that you will be filled with all the fullness of God.
Sha’ul is praying for all of us to be filled with Ruach so that we can grow and come closer to Adonai in our lives. How often do I pray for that myself and seek to be closer to God, but the example is that I should pray for the body of believers and not just myself, that as we pray we focus on the community. Dear Lord forgive me for being so myopic in my prayers. Lord let Your Spirit fall on Your people so that they may stand in this world for You. Abba let this generation confess and return to You, I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
