I pray that the glorious Father, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would give you a spirit of wisdom and REVELATION as you come to know Christ better. Then you will have deeper INSIGHT. You will know the CONFIDENCE that he calls you to have and the glorious WEALTH that God’s people will inherit. You will also know the unlimited GREATNESS of HIS POWER as it works with might and strength for us, the believers.” Ephesians 1:16-19 (GWT)

And I also say to you that you are Peter, and ON THIS ROCK I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
