Ephesians 3: 14-19
I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Grant us the grace to seek you, So that we find you and come to know you In order that we may truly love you and in loving you we may fully serve you.
A call to prayer
Come now, turn aside from the busyness of the day, escape for a moment from the distractions and burdens on your mind, allow yourself to wait in silence and enter the inner chamber of your soul,shut out everything except God and rest awhile in Him.
