The reason that I will kneel,
In the presence of the Father;
For the humbleness I reveal,
Is taking me so much further.
From whom all of the family,
In both Heaven and here on earth;
Receive His name eternally,
At the time of their very birth.
I ask God to give you a gift,
Of His glory and from His wealth;
Something that will give you a lift,
Unto your weak spiritual health.
I am praying that He will give,
You inner strength and the power;
So you may spiritually live,
A godly life through each hour.
Then through faith Christ will live in you,
That your life will start to take root;
As you will enrich each day through,
Bearing delicious ripen fruit.
I also pray love is your ground,
Taking root for your foundation;
And imagine your growth as sound,
For achieving your salvation.
So all of the people of God,
You are able to understand;
On how deep to honor and laud,
For spreading love throughout the land.
For you shall know the love of Christ,
Which goes beyond any knowledge;
The feel of being sacrificed,
And suffering to acknowledge.
I am praying this so that you,
Be wholly filled with His Spirit;
And shall always be knowing true,
That allows you to inherit.
Glory of God is in His church,
And in Christ for eternity;
That is more we could ever search,
