Prayer To God The Father
By June Stein
Let us pray to God our Father,
In Him we all receive our name,
Out of His glorious riches,
May He strengthen us with power,
That through His Spirit within us,
Christ may dwell in our heart through faith.
Rooted and established in love,
May we have power with all the saints,
To grasp how wide and long and high,
And deep, is the love of our Christ,
In love that surpasses knowledge,
May we be filled to full measure.
God can do immeasurably more,
Than all we ask or imagine,
By His power at work within us,
To Him be glory in the church…
And in Christ Jesus forever,
Through all generations; Amen!
[A paraphrase of Ephesians 3: 14-21]
