Holy God, you are the author of wisdom. You planted the desire for eternity in our hearts. You send us out to bring your message to a dangerous world in need of Jesus. I pray for your saints away from home, spreading your eternal hope. Replace any homesickness with the sense of being home in the Spirit. Strengthen them as they walk your path of service. I can’t say it better than Paul, your eloquent spokesman to the gentiles. “For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3: 14-21 ESV)
