Prayer

Fr. Brian Campbell S.J., at People for Others Blog posted this on Monday:  
This is one of my favorites:
This, then, is what I pray, kneeling before the Father, from whom every fatherhood, in heaven or on earth takes its name.
In the abundance of his glory may he, through his Spirit, enable you to grow firm in power with regard to your inner self so that Christ may live in your hearts through faith and then, planted in love and built on love, with all God’s holy people you will have the strength to grasp the breadth and the length, the height and the depth, so that, knowing the love of Christ which is beyond knowledge, you may be filled with the utter fullness of God.
Glory be to him whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine; glory be to him from generation to generation in the Church and in Christ Jesus for ever and ever. Amen.
[Ephesians 3: 14-21]
