Paul's Hopes and Prayers for the Ephesians

For this cause I, Paul, am the prisoner of ChristJesus on behalf of you Gentiles, +
if it is so that you have heard of the administration of that grace of God which was given me toward you; +
how that by revelation the mystery was made known to me, as I wrote before in few words, +
by which, when you read, you can perceive my understanding in the mystery of Christ; +
which in other generations was not made known to the children of men, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit; +
that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of his promise in Christ Jesus through the Good News, +
of which I was made a servant, according to the gift of that grace of God which was given me according to the working of his power. +
To me, the very least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, +
and to make all men see what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God, who created all things through Jesus Christ; +
to the intent that now through the assembly the manifold wisdom of God might be made known to the principalities and the powers in the heavenly places, +
according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord; +
in whom we have boldness and access in confidence through our faith in him. +
Therefore I ask that you may not lose heart at my troubles for you, which are your glory. +
For this cause, I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, +
from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, +
that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that you may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man; +
that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that you, being rooted and grounded in love, +
may be strengthened to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and height and depth, +
and to know Christ's love which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. +
Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, +
to him be the glory in the assembly and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen. +
