Praying the Ephesians prayers in a personal way!

Ephesians 3:14-21 (Amplified Bible)

14 For this reason [seeing the greatness of this plan by which I am built together in Christ], I bow my knees before the Father of my Lord Jesus Christ,

15 For {and from} Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named [that Father from Whom all fatherhood takes its title and derives its name].

16 May He grant me out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in my inner [being] by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling my innermost being and personality].

17 May Christ through my faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in my heart! May I be rooted deep in love and founded securely on (His) love,

18 That I may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God's devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];

19 [That I may really come] to know [practically, through experience for myself] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that I may be filled [through all my being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within me,is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that I ask or think my highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]

21 To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).
