God’s Affection For You

Prayer for God’s Affection

Father, the creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from your glorious, unlimited resources that you will empower us with inner strength through your Holy Spirit.  Make your home in our hearts as we put our trust in you. May our roots grow down into your love and keep us strong. And may we have the power to understand how wide, how long, how high, and how deep your love is.  May we experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. I pray that the love of Christ will make us complete with all the fullness of life and power that only comes from you.

Amen.

Quote: “Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don’t see what goes on underground – as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don’t see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree.” ~Joyce Meyer

Scripture: “When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.  I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit.  Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him.  Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep your strong.  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 is.  May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.  Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”  (Ephesians 3:14-19, NLT)
