For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.

– Ephesians 1:15–23


Oh God, may my brothers and sisters in Christ see Jesus in a fresh way, today. Raised from the dead seated at your right hand in the heavenly places, far above everyone, everything, every name, not only now, but for all of eternity. And as they see you today, may they realize that you have put all things under his feet, given him as head over all things to the church, to us, that Jesus lives in us. That Jesus lives in them. That his life is their life. Oh, that his joy is their joy. That his strength is their strength. I pray for my brothers and sisters. May they know the life and joy and hope and strength of Jesus living in them.
