Ephesians 1.15-23 as an affirmation of faith

We believe in God, the Mother and Father of glory. We believe in our Lord Jesus Christ, in whom God has put immeasurably great power to work, raising him from the dead and seating him at God's right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come. God has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, which is his body, the fullness of Christ who fills all in all.

We pray that God may grant us a spirit of wisdom and revelation, and that we may come to know God. We pray that the eyes of our hearts may be enlightened, that we may know the hope to which God has called us, and that we may know the riches of God's glorious inheritance among the saints, and the immeasurable greatness of God's power for us who believe. As we give thanks for one another and remember each other in our prayers, may God deepen our faith, and our love for all the saints.
