Empower

At Choose to Invest we are consistently humbled that by God's special favor and mighty power, we have been given the wonderful privilege of serving him by spreading the good news, the gospel of Jesus Christ. We did nothing and continue to do nothing to deserve it. In fact, we recognize that we are the least deserving and yet chosen for this special joy of sharing the endless treasures available to our friends here in Africa and Journey interns, in Christ Jesus. The treasure, is Jesus! (summarized Ephesians 3)
Our Prayer as Choose to Invest is the prayer of Paul to the Ephesians, a prayer for spiritual empowering. It is a prayer that is filled with promise because of who God is, our father and our creator. A prayer filled with the unleashing of blessing that has already been granted to us and bestowed upon us because of Christ and the conquering of death that we may have life and life abundantly. It is the prayer of the Father's heart for those who are called his disciples, that they would be strengthened in their inner most being and that Christ Jesus would dwell deep with in their hearts, and that they would be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. According to HIS power and work within them (and us!) that we would get to experience the "immeasurably more" and ultimately to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus  THROUGHOUT ALL GENERATIONS..

A Prayer for the Ephesians 3:14-21

14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
