Today... 'Father God' - Poem by Roy Allen

Kneeling before my Father God I pray
that out of His glorious riches I may
be strengthened through the power of His Spirit
and together with all the saints I'll inherit
a love which all knowledge surpasses
and be filled with the measure of His fullness.
To know how wide and long and high and deep
Is the love that Christ for all of His lost sheep
So that He may by faith dwell within my heart
which no power in in hell can ever part.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Ephesians 3: 14-19—14
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.

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
'Father God'

Millennium prayer by Cliff Richard: -

Our Father who art in Heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy Kingdom come
thy will be done on earth as in heaven
Give us to thee our daily bread
And forgive our sins
As we forgive each one of those who sin against us
And lead us not to the time of trial
But deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom the power and the glory

Let all the people sing Amen
In every tribe and tongue
Let every hearts desire be joined
To see the kingdom come
Let every hope and every dream
Be born in love again
Let all the world sing with one voice
Let the people say amen
Amen Amen Amen
