A Prayer for Westchurch in Our Review

... we might want to make this our request to God as we look to the future of Westchurch.

"For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name.

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. "

(Ephesians 3:14-21 NIV)

If we follow this we will be:
Acknowledging that our future will come from his glorious riches not merely our own planning and wisdom,
Christ will have a renewed place in our hearts and church,
We will find a new depth of love for Christ, each other and the world around us,
We acknowledge that if it is God's will, he will do in us and through us far more than we can imagine,
That whatever we achieve we will give him the glory.
