Prayer of Blessing

May God strengthen you by the Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in.

May God help you, with both feet planted firmly on love, be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love.

May you reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! May you live full lives, full in the fullness of God.

May God allow you to experience the power that can do anything—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!

May God work deeply and gently within you through the Spirit.

from Ephesians 3
