For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus1 and your love for all the saints,216
I have not stopped giving thanks for you,3 remembering you in my prayers.417
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father,5 may give you the Spirita of wisdom6 and revelation, so that you may know him better.
I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened7 in order that you may know the hope to which he has called8 you, the riches9 of his glorious inheritance10 in the saints,1119
and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power12 is like the working of his mighty strength,1320
which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead14 and seated him at his right hand15 in the heavenly realms,16
