Thanksgiving and Prayer
15For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people,
16I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.
17I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit Or a spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
18I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,
19and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength
20he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,
21far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.
22And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church,
23which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
