Day 30: The Fullness of God
For this reason I kneel before You, Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. Lord, I pray that out of Your glorious riches my children may be strengthen with power through Your Spirit in their inner beings, so that You, Lord, may dwell in their hearts through faith. And I pray that they, being rooted and established in love 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, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that my children may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3: 14-19
This prayer found in Ephesians really says it all. It combines the hopes and dreams I have for my children. I want them to experience the fullness of God—not just a little bit, all of it. I want them to know, really know, the love of Christ. I want them to understand that the love of God is wide enough, long enough, high enough, deep enough to cover any mistake, any insecurity, any fear, any foe that they may encounter. I want them to know the power of God in their hearts, and spirits, and souls, and minds. I want them to be rooted in love, which will keep them steady when the tough winds of life blow. It is for these reasons that I kneel before God, every day. Many times I literally kneel, but always my heart is on its knees, bowing to the only One who has all the answers I need.
As these 30 Days of Prayer now come to a close, I hope that you will keep going. I hope and pray that we are now in a habit of praying for the children in our lives.
It makes a difference.
God does hear and will answer.
Just wait and see.
