Father, I thank you for giving me a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You. I thank you for opening the eyes of my understanding, that I might know the hope and plan of Your calling in my life, the riches of Your glory of Your inheritance in the saints, and the exceeding greatness of Your power to me who believes.
For this reason, I bow my knees before the Father from Whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named. I pray that according to the riches of Your glory I might be strengthened with power through Your Spirit in my inner man. I pray that Christ may dwell in my heart through faith. And that being rooted and grounded in love I may be able to comprehend with all the saints, the breadth, length, depth, and height of the love of Christ. And I will know by experience the love that surpasses all understanding, that I may be filled with all the very fullness of God.
Father, I pray that I would be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, and that I would walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. That I would be strengthened with all might, according to Your glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering, with joyfulness.
I know Him, the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed unto His death. That by any means I may obtain to the resurrection of the dead, not that I have already obtained or am already perfect, but I press on that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has laid hold of me. I do not count myself to have apprehended but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
