November 15

“And 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,”  Ephesians 3:17b-18 (NIV)

This prayer of Paul for the Christians in Ephesus is a prayer we need to pray for ourselves and for our friends and families. We need to pray a prayer like this because it does not come naturally to us to comprehend the greatness of our Lord’s love for us. We remember that Jesus died for us because He loved us, but humanly we really can’t understand all that is involved in what He did. We need God’s help to comprehend it. And Jesus is praying for us in order to make us pure and holy, completely devoted to Him and His love is what motivates Him to do that for us. But we cannot understand that either without God’s help.
