Prayer Requests Greater Than Me

“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from Whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:14-19).

Tap the true riches of eternal, unlimited glory.
Strengthened inside by uncontainable Power.
Indwelt by One greater than the universe.
Measure, with the whole Church, the unfathomable (3:8).
Know what is beyond knowledge.
Filled up with the fullness of the Infinite.

I have yet to learn to pray like this, which means I have not yet come to desire, prize, or treasure these things. I am still focused on anchored feet and not gazing upward and homeward with all that I am.

Father, keep commanding us to pray. Lord Jesus, keep teaching us to pray. Holy Spirit, keep helping us to pray.
