A Prayer for Spiritual Strength
Here is a prayer from the Bible that Paul prays for others. I have added pronouns that will work for each of us as an individual. The changes of pronouns are in parentheses and the prayer will now fit each of us individually. If the prayer is for your family collectively, than replace the (MY) with (OUR), the (I) to (WE), and the (ME) to (US) and you will have a family prayer for spiritual strength. I have it also as a PDF so you can print it and have it with you…just click and print.
Ephesians 3.14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you(ME) to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your(MY) inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your(MY) hearts through faith—that you (I), being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength 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, that you(I) may be filled with all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we(I) ask or think, according to the power at work within us (ME), 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
