Seeing there is in Christ Jesus an infinite fullness
of all that we can want or wish,
O that we may all receive of his fullness,
grace upon grace;
grace to pardon our sins, and subdue our iniquities;
to justify our persons and to sanctify our souls;
and to complete that holy change,
that renewal of our hearts,
whereby we may be transformed
into that blessed image wherein you created us.
O make us all worthy to be partakers
of the inheritance of your saints in light;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
(A prayer of John Wesley)
“May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light.” (Colossians 1: 11b-12 NLT).
