I ask that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto (name) the spirit of wisdom, and in the knowledge of him: Give (name/them) special insight, wisdom that is not naturally attained, and supernatural enabling them to see what they could never see by themselves. Insight into the mysteries and secrets – in the deep and intimate knowledge of the Father

I ask that name/they might be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; to have comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God, understanding and discerning spiritual things; The eyes of their  understanding being enlightened, flooded with light; that Name/they may know what is the hope of His calling, invitation, destination, and what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance, Our birthright, all that is contained in the hope on the promises of God in the saints.

Grant Name/them, according to His glorious riches and power, to be strengthened with power, by His Spirit in their inner man; reinforce their soul/mind with mighty power by the Holy Spirit who indwells their innermost being and personality, and that they would increase in the knowledge of God; unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; That Christ may dwell abide, make His permanent home in their hearts by faith; that Name/they being rooted and grounded founded securely in love, that their love may abound yet more and more extending to its fullest development.

May Name/they be able to comprehend take hold of and make their own the experience of that love, with all saints, what is the breadth spacious, outstretched without end, and length extensive, and depth intensive and consoling, and height exalted; of the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that they might be filled through all their being with all the fullness of God rich in the divine presence, flooded with God Himself, So that growing in knowledge and in all judgment; discernment, moral perception, and keen insight, Name/they may approve things that are excellent; distinguishing the moral differences that they may be sincere and without offense untainted and pure, unerring and blameless; walking worthy of the Lord not stumbling, nor causing others to stumble unto all pleasing, till as the day of Christ approaches

Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, love, joy, peace, steadfast perseverance, kindness, moral goodness, faith, patience, and self-control (Gal 5:22-23) that Name/they may produce good works, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God. that His glory may be manifest and recognized; And that Name/they may know what is the exceeding immeasurable, unlimited, and surpassing greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, Which he wrought demonstrated in Christ, when he raised Him from the dead, delivering us from the power of darkness, and translating us into the kingdom of His dear Son, and setting Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places,
Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And has put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church,

I thank the Father, which has made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, Unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
