A Prayer to Grasp the Fullness of God’s Love
By: Alisha Headley
“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s people, to grasp how wide and how 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.” – Ephesians 3:17-19
From the day we are born, we all have a thirst and hunger to be full. To be whole. To be complete. To be loved. We live in a fallen world and are born into this world as fallen, broken, not-quite-whole people.
Many of us search to satisfy this love-longing through the things of this world. Whether it’s love from other people, trying to achieve a great amount of success, or just filling our lives with distraction after distraction, we are left still feeling hungry and thirsty for more.
We will either be graspers of God’s love or graspers for lesser loves of this world.
