Oath: The joint commitment of our community

in heaven and on earth derives its name. We pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen us
with power through his Spirit in our inner being, so that
Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith. And we
pray that we, being rooted and established in love, may have
power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and
long and high and deep is the love of Christ and to know this
love that surpasses knowledge—that we may be filled to the
measure of all the fullness of God.”
"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all
we ask or imagine, according to the power that is at work
within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
