40 Days of Prayer
This devotional series is in conjunction with the current curriculum series all Life and Home Groups are currently going through.
14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
One of God’s greatest provisions for the Christ-follower is the filling of the believer with His fullness. Paul itemizes this fullness: riches of God’s glory, power and strength of the Holy Spirit, and Christ’s love which surpasses knowledge. When we think of a need or ask for something in prayer we can be confident that God is able, willing, and faithful to provide for us through the fullness which He has already given. Lean on God’s fullness to provide for you.
