“For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in Heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened….” Ephesians 3:14-21

This is a prayer fit to be used by ministers for their congregations, and by all Christians for themselves. It may be used as a daily prayer and we should offer it up in faith, without apprehending that the favor we ask is too great. God will do exceedingly more for us than we can either ask or understand. Whatever we ask, He will grant us still more; for, though we are sinners, Jesus has received gifts even for sinners, and to every one of us (verse 7) is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ, that we may enjoy all things richly — Christ being rich toward all them that call upon Him.

O God, You are our Father, reconciled to us in Christ. Grant us, therefore, power, great power, according to the riches of Your glory, not according to the narrowness of our hearts. We stand in need of great power, for we have great enemies. Strengthen us by Your Spirit in the inner man. Lord Jesus, dwell in our hearts and grant us to be rooted in Your love, that we may know it more and more, that it may be shed abroad in our hearts, that we may be enabled to manifest its fruit in our lives, and that we may be filled with all the fullness of God. You are able to do exceeding and abundantly above all that I can ask or think. Work, therefore in me, all the good pleasure of Your goodness and the work of faith with power.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
