“Ephesians 3:14 - 21 (Paul's Prayer for the Ephesians). I pray this prayer for our MNU community and for my family and friends. May we realize His glorious riches and experience the strength and power of His Spirit living in us as Christ dwells in our hearts. This extravagant love is so immense! Praise to Father God who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, and it is His power and love that is at work within us."
