Thanksgiving and Prayer

15 For this reason, (A)because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love[a] toward all the saints, 16 I (B)do not cease to give thanks for you, (C)remembering you in my prayers, 17 that (D)the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, (E)may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18 (F)having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is (G)the hope to which he has called you, what are (H)the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, (I)according to the working of (J)his great might 20 that he worked in Christ (K)when he raised him from the dead and (L)seated him at his right hand (M)in the heavenly places, 21 (N)far above (O)all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above (P)every name that is named, not only in (Q)this age but also in the one to come. 22 And (R)he put all things under his feet and gave him as (S)head over all things to the church, 23 (T)which is his body, (U)the fullness of him (V)who fills (W)all in all.

By Grace Through Faith

(X)And you were (Y)dead in the trespasses and sins (Z)in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following (AA)the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in (AB)the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in (AC)the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body[b] and the mind, and (AD)were by nature (AE)children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.[c] But[d] God, being (AF)rich in mercy, (AG)because of the great love with which he loved us, even (AH)when we were dead in our trespasses, (AI)made us alive together with Christ—(AJ)by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and (AK)seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable (AL)riches of his grace in (AM)kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
