An Apostle's Prayer

I love when I come across these prayers, that the apostle's prayed for the saints. I think it is fitting, since we, the church of God,  are built upon the foundation of the "prophets, and apostles- Jesus being the chief cornerstone" as mentioned in Ephesians 2:20. Their prayers, as well as  their teachings, are worth repeating.  So this is my prayer for us all this day:

Ephesians 3:16-21
[I pray ] that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,  that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,  may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—  to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,  to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
