Scripture Prayer – God, You Said based on Ephesians 1-3

God, You said that we are made alive in Christ Jesus, although we were dead in trespasses and sins, in which we once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.

But God, You are so very rich in mercy, because of Your great love with which You have loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, You made us alive together with Christ (by grace we have been saved), and You raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,so that in this very age and the ages to come You might show the exceeding riches of Your grace in this beautiful love and Your kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace we each have been saved through faith, and this is because of nothing that we have done, nothing that we can ever earn on our own; NO indeed, It is the gift that is given to us by You, Father. We will not boast of ourselves, but instead praise Your name and give you all the honor, glory, and praise! For we are Your workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which You, Father, prepared beforehand. Help us to walk in them through the leading, guiding and teaching of Holy Spirit.

Now in Christ Jesus we were once far off, but we thank You, Father, that we have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For through Him we have access by one Spirit to the Father. Now, therefore, we are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of You, God. We thank You that wehave been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone. In Him, we are being fitted together as a whole building. In this Love of Yours, Father, we praise You that we are growing into the holy temple in the Lord and being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit. I pray we learn even more how to be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel.

God, we praise Your mighty name! You have saved us, so we bow our knees to You in all humility, our Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named. We ask knowing that we will receive that You would grant us, according to the riches of Your glory in Christ Jesus, to be strengthened with might through Your Holy Spirit in the inner man. We pray that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith and the hearts of those that do not know You yet, Father. Yes, Lord, as we are being rooted and grounded in Your great Love, we thank You that we are 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. We thank You, Abba Father, that we are being filled with all the fullness of You, God, even more as You teach us and reveal these things through us. We praise Your name that we each have the mind of Christ and submit to the renewing of our minds in Him as we pursue knowing You and Your love even more.

We Bless You, God. Thank You, Father, for our Lord Jesus Christ, for already blessing us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. Thank You, Father, for choosing us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love. We praise Your name for having already predestined us to adoption as sons and daughters by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of Your will. We praise the glory of Your grace, God, by which You have already made us accepted in the Beloved, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of Your grace. We thank You, that through Him, You have made this grace to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of Your will, according to Your good pleasure, Father, which You purposed in Jesus Christ. We praise You, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times You will gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. Yes, we magnify Your name, that In Him we have obtained an irrevocable inheritance. Yes, we thank You that we have already been predestined according to the purpose of You, God, who works all things according to the counsel of Your will, that we who have trusted in Christ should be to the praise of Your glory. Yes, we trusted after we heard the word of truth, the gospel of our salvation and we have also believed upon Jesus Christ! We thank You, God that we were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise who is our guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession. We praise Your glory, God.

Therefore we also, after declaring our faith in the Lord Jesus and our love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for those who will come to the Lord through every family, household, business, and nation across the world. We thank you in advance for many who will come and are coming even now to the knowledge of You, God. We make mention of those also who are in this heavenly, kingdom family now in this prayer and give You all honor and praise for their salvation through grace in Jesus. God of our Lord Jesus Christ, Father of glory, we ask that You give them all the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You. Give them eyes of understanding that is fully enlightened; that each heart may know what is the hope of Your calling, what are the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in all of us, and what is the exceeding greatness of Your power toward us who believe, according to the working of Your mighty power which You worked in Christ when You raised Him from the dead and seated Him at Your right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. We thank You, that You put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is us, His body, the fullness of You God, who fills all in all, in Him.

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

Thank you Father, Amen
