infinitely more

this feels like an rhapsodic explosion of Paul's about the love he knows & sees coming from God through Jesus.

Ephesians 3

 When I think of the wisdom & scope of God's plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, 15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.

16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit.

17 Then Christ will be more & more at home in your hearts as you trust in him.

May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love & keep you strong.

18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should,

      how wide,

      how long,

      how high,

      and how deep his love is.

19 May you experience the love of Christ,

      though it is too great to understand fully.

Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

  20 Now all glory to God,

        who is able,

        through his mighty power at work within us,

        to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope.

21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

...infinitely more...

anyone besides me need God to "accomplish infinitely more than I dare to hope or ask?"
