in Him – a scripture prayer

A Prayer from Ephesians 1:3-14 (personalized)

Praise be to You, God and Father of my Lord Jesus Christ, you have blessed me in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For you chose me in Christ before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.

In love you predestined me for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with your pleasure and will— to the praise of your glorious grace, which you have freely given me in the One you love.

In Christ I have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of your grace that you lavished on me. With all wisdom and understanding, you made known to me the mystery of your will according to your good pleasure, which you purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.

In Christ I was also chosen, having been predestined according to your plan; you who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of your will, in order that I, who put my hope in Christ, might exist (be) for the praise of your glory.

And I was included in Christ when I heard the message of truth, the gospel of my salvation. When I believed, I was marked in Christ with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing my inheritance until the redemption of us who are your possession—to the praise of your glory.

Thank you Almighty God; my Forever Father.

Amen and Amen.
