Oh God, Grant Me Your Strength! – from Ephesians 3:16-19

 86660011

 

That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man; 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fulness of God.

 

 Oh God, grant me, please grant me to be strengthened with the power of your Spirit in the depths of my being, so that in this power Christ will dwell comfortably, and I will be rooted and grounded in your love.

Lord without your strength, without your power all my effort at holiness and righteousness is useless.  I fail every time.  But when You empower me I will rise up like a great warrior to do battle; and I will strike down the enemy every time he come at me.

The strength and power of Your love is wonderful. Fill up the depths of my being with it. Never leave me.  Flood my whole being with Your strong Spirit. I stand in the strength of the Lord. I can do all things in Your strength.
