Ephesian Prayer

Ephesian Prayer

based on Ephesians 3:16-21
words and music by Jay C. Treat

Verse 1

May God's own Spirit give us strength
     with power in our inner selves.
May Jesus Christ our Savior make his home
     within our hearts by faith.

Refrain (optional)

Breadth and length and height and depth!
Breadth and length and height and depth!

Verse 2

May we put roots down in God's love
     that we, as saints before have done,
May fully come to know the love of Christ
     no one can comprehend.

Verse 3

May God's own nature fill our lives
    until we fully realize
The breadth and length and height and depth of Christ,
    the fullness of God's love.


To God who is able, by the power at work among us,
     to do so much greater than all we ask or imagine,
to God be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus,
     to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.
