Thursday Prayer

This, then, is what I pray, kneeling before the Father, from whom every family, whether spiritual or natural, takes its name:

Out of his infinite glory, may he give you the power through his Spirit for your hidden self to grow strong, so that Christ may live in your hearts through faith, and then, planted in love and built on love, you will with all the saints have strength to grasp the breadth and the length, the height and the depth; until, knowing the love of Christ, which is beyond all knowledge, you are 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

Hey Ya'll,
If you havent been to Inner Dorothy lately, head on over and give a loving comment to Sue. I think she needs it right now.

Thanks be to God and thank you all for your prayers: my friend triumphed in her oral exams today and has a brand new M.A. in theology! And one of her profs seems to be sounding her out about publishing her last paper for that course. She has been through a lot and this will really help her healing and rebirth process.
