For this reason I kneel3 before the Father,
from whom his whole familya in heaven and on earth derives its name.
I pray that out of his glorious riches4 he may strengthen you with power5 through his Spirit in your inner being,617
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts7 through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted8 and established in love,
may have power, together with all the saints,9 to grasp how wide and long and high and deep10 is the love of Christ,
and to know this love that surpasses knowledge11--that you may be filled12 to the measure of all the fullness of God.1320
Now to him who is able14 to do immeasurably more than all we ask15 or imagine, according to his power16 that is at work within us,
to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.17
