Back to Prevailing Prayer and Intercession
The Apostle Paul
This is one of the most marvelous prayers recorded in the Bible. Here Paul prays that God's people will be filled with ALL the fulness of God. He concludes by expressing that marvelous "Now to Him who is able" promise that has been claimed for so many things down through the centuries, though it particularly applies to becoming Christ-like!
14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,[a]
15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,
17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—
19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be ﬁlled with all the fullness of God.
20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
