Prayer of Paul (Personalized)

(Father), grant me a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You, by having the eyes of my heart flooded with light, so that I can know and understand the hope to which You have called me, how rich is Your glorious inheritance in the saints,  and what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of Your power in and for me, as demonstrated in the working of Your mighty strength, which You exerted in Christ when You raised Him from the dead and seated Him at Your right hand in the heavenly, and You raised me up together with Him and made me sit down together in the heavenly sphere in Christ Jesus.

Grant me (Father), out of the rich treasury of Your glory, strength reinforced with mighty power in my inner man by the Holy Spirit; may Christ through my faith dwell in my heart! May I be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, that I may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp what is the breadth, length, height, and depth of it, that I may come to know the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge; that I may be filled unto all the fullness of God.

Father, may I be filled with the full knowledge of Your will in all spiritual wisdom, and in understanding and discernment of spiritual things, that I may walk in a manner worthy of You, fully pleasing to You, desiring to please You in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing and increasing in and by the knowledge of You. I pray that I may be invigorated and strengthened with all power according to the might of Your glory, (with) every kind of endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to You, Father, Who has qualified and made me fit to share the portion which is the inheritance of the saints in the Light. I pray that my love will keep on growing in knowledge and every kind of discernment, so that I can determine what really matters and be pure and blameless in the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise (of You, Father).

Now to You, Who by the power that is at work within me, is able to do superabundantly, far over and above all that I dare ask or think, to You be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout  all generations forever and ever Amen!

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
