Paul's prayer

1WITH this in mind I pray for you, I, Paul, who for the sake of you Gentiles am now the prisoner of Christ Jesus --

2for surely you have heard how God's gift of grace to me was designed for your benefit.

3It was by a revelation that his secret purpose was made known to me. I have already written you a brief account of this,

4and by reading it you can see that I understand the secret purpose of Christ.

5In former generations that secret was not disclosed to mankind; but now by inspiration it has been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets,

6that through the gospel the Gentiles are joint heirs with the Jews, part of the same body, sharers together in the promise made in Christ Jesus.

7Such is the gospel of which I was made a minister by God's unmerited gift, so powerfully at work in me.

8To me, who am less than the least of all God's people, he has granted the privilege of proclaiming to the Gentiles the good news of the unfathomable riches of Christ,

9and of bringing to light how this hidden purpose was to be put into effect. It lay concealed for long ages with God the Creator of the universe,

10in order that now, through the church, the wisdom of God in its infinite variety might be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms.

11This accords with his age-long purpose, which he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord,

12in whom we have freedom of access to God, with the confidence born of trust in him.

13I beg you, then, not to lose heart over my sufferings for you; indeed, they are your glory.

14With this in mind, then, I kneel in prayer to the Father,

15from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name,

16that out of the treasures of his glory he may grant you inward strength and power through his Spirit,

17that through faith Christ may dwell in your hearts in love. With deep roots and firm foundations

18may you, in company with all God's people, be strong to grasp what is the breadth and length and height and depth

19of Christ's love, and to know it, though it is beyond knowledge. So may you be filled with the very fullness of God.

20Now to him who is able through the power which is at work among us to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or conceive,

21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus from generation to generation for evermore! Amen.
