Series: "Praying with Paul" - Ephesians 3:14-21 - A prayer to be strengthened!

Tomorrow Stefano will continue the series:
"Praying with Paul", in which we'll engage with
Paul's prayers in his letters. 

For this sermon: 
"A prayer to be strengthened",
we'll engage with Ephesians 3:14-21.

To introduce this sermon we'll interact with the question: what is the ultimate centre and goal of your prayers?

These will then be the three main points:
1. A faith to be saturated in Christ.
2. A love to be mature in Christ.
3. A call to glorify Christ. 

May God "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."

Ephesians 3:16-19 (ESV)

To dig deeper in the themes we'll engage with in this series,
Stefano will encourage the church to read and interact
with the book of  D. A. Carson: 
A Call to Spiritual Reformation: Priorities from Paul and His Prayers
which is available in Italian.
