SylviaAs Paul prayed for his disciples in the churches of Ephesus, Colosse, Philippi, and Thessalonica, he asked God to do what only God could do, to take the written word and make it a living epistle in their transformed lives.

These are personalized, paraphrased scriptures which are powerful swords of the Spirit. Pray them for the people for whom you are concerned that they keep growing up to maturity in Christ. God will delight to answer the desires of His own heart as you pray His own words for them. 

 
Ephesians 3:15-20
 
I call You, Father, and I pray
•that from Your glorious riches You will strengthen _____ with power through Your Spirit in their inner being,
 
•that Christ may dwell in ____'s heart through faith,
 
•that _____ will be rooted and established in love,
 
•that _____ may have power, with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,
 
•that _____ will know this love that surpasses knowledge,
 
•that _____ will be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
I give You all the glory, for You are able to do immeasurably more than all I ask or imagine, according to Your power that is working within us.
