Based on
Ephesians 1:18-19 (but the following continues till verse 21 to avoid breaking a sentence),
"I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.",
Ephesians 3:20 (but for the same reason this continues till verse 21)
"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his 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."
and Luke 1:37,
"For no word from God will ever fail." ,
Ruth Myers in "31 Days of Praise" writes,
"Lord, I extol You for Your great power toward us who believe - Your tremendous invincible power that works in us and for us... the same almighty strength You used when You raised Jesus from the dead and seated Him far above all other power, visible and invisible. You are able to do infinitely beyond all our highest prayers or thoughts. Nothing is impossible with You!"
Christ is the bread of life:
When we eat this bread and drink this cup,
we proclaim your death, Lord Jesus,
until you come in glory.
