May God continue to give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know God more fully. May the eyes of your hearts be heart enlightened so that you may know the hope to which God has called you, what are the riches of God’s glorious inheritance, and what is God’s incomparably great power for us who believe.
