Season After Pentecost – Praying for Others

One of the wonderful things about belonging to a circle of faith is being prayed for. I have fond memories of being prayed for, and I am assured that I am still being prayed for. One of the other wonderful things about belonging to a circle of faith is praying for others. I have fond memories of praying for others, and I continue to pray for others. While we may have not met in person, beloved reader (and for those of my beloved readers that I have met, I hold dear the memories of those meetings) I feel that all of you are within my circle of faith. Most of you I do not know, and if I am very honest, I am not sure how some of you came to find me. But each one of you is special and welcomed. And so I say with the writer of Ephesians (yes, Paul, at is best) . . .

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power 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, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:14-21)

I say too, “Amen.” Selah!
