PRAYER FOCUS: Standing in Awe at the Love of God
SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 3:14-21

This is one of the most powerful recorded prayer we have in the Scriptures. Pray this over yourself, your household, your House Church, and your friends. Pray this over those who do not yet know Jesus that thiswould be the kind of love they experience in 2021. 

Ephesians 3:14 – 21

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. 

Take some time to: 

  1. Pray for open and soft hearts to the love of God for us in Christ.
  2. Pray for repentance for ourselves, and those in our churches, for the way we have let our love be drawn to other people and other things ahead of Jesus. 
  3. Pray for God’s love to fill us so full that we would be changed by it, and moved to love others. 
  4. Pray that we would use the opportunities we have to love those who do not yet know Jesus with the love he has shown us.
