Thoughts on Prayer in Ephesians

UnknownThe poem below (quoted from Alvin VanderGriend’s book “Love to Pray”) is a great reflection on Ephesians 3:14-19.

Ephesians 3, “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.”

 

“Could we with ink the oceans fill

And where the skies of parchment made,

Were every stock on earth quill

And every man a scribe by trade–

To write the love of God above

Would drain the oceans dry;

Nor could the scroll contain the whole

Though the stretched from sky to sky.”

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
