“I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”  Ephesians 3:17-19 

Dear Jesus, I join Paul in praying that your people, especially the ones I know, would set aside their busy activity and rest quietly contemplating your love for them.  Help them to realize your complete and full forgiveness that was purchased with your very life.  Give them the power to let go of every single bad decision and moral failure they have ever committed.  Help them realize that their troubles do not mean you are indifferent or cold toward them.  Let them see that in every blessing there is a hug from you, a confirmation that you love them.  When they step out to face the world, make them confident because they know you have their back without condemnation.  Make them secure and peace filled because they are wrapped in your love.  Amen. 

God’s love empowers people to live life to the fullest.
