I always pray to the great and glorious Father, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I pray that he will give you the Spirit, who will let you know truths about God and help you understand them, so that you will know him better.
I pray that God will open your minds to see his truth.
Then you will know the hope that he has chosen us to have.
You will know that the blessings God has promised his holy people are rich and glorious.
And you will know that God's power is very great for us who believe.
It is the same as the mighty power he used to raise Christ from death and put him at his right side in the heavenly places.
He put Christ over all rulers, authorities, powers, and kings.
He gave him authority over everything that has power in this world or in the next world.
God put everything under Christ's power and made him head over everything for the church.
The church is Christ's body.
It is filled with him.
He makes everything complete in every way.
