New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
14 When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, 14 For this reason I kneel before the Father,
15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. 15 from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name.
16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being,
17 And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love. 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,
18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is. 18 may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,
19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God. 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
20 Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope. 20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
21 May he be given glory in the church and in Christ Jesus forever and ever through endless ages. Amen. 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
