I thank you, dear God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that you have given us a spirit of wisdom and revelation to know you. Thank you for the hope and glorious inheritance we have in you. Thank you that we have access to your great power which you demonstrated when you raised Christ from the dead and seated him at your right hand far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every other name, not only in the present age but also in the age to come. You put all things under the authority of Christ and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all (Ephesians 1:17-23).
