Prayer, Plain and Simple

And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. (Ephesians 3:18,19 NLT)

Father, I ask you for the capacity to grasp the depths of your great love for me. Help me wrap my mind around how you not only forgive and cleanse me from sin, but you take it so far out of my reach, not to mention out of your thought and memory. How could you be so good to me, Lord? Please expand my ability to experience your love, though it’s impossible to do so from a human point of view. This will make me a whole person, Jesus! That is what I long for! That is what you died to make me. Bring it on, dear Lord. In Jesus Name, Amen.
