And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. (Ephesians 2:1-3 ESV)
И вас, мертвых по преступлениям и грехам вашим, в которых вы некогда жили, по обычаю мира сего, по *воле* князя, господствующего в воздухе, духа, действующего ныне в сынах противления, между которыми и мы все жили некогда по нашим плотским похотям, исполняя желания плоти и помыслов, и были по природе чадами гнева, как и прочие, (Ефесянам 2:1-3 Russian)
Most holy and awesome God, our dear Heavenly Father ~ thank you for the light of your love that brightens our hearts and minds on this new day. Help all sincere Christians to remember where we came from as followers of Christ. Your amazing grace has reached souls all over the world and we ask that you will open new doors of opportunity for the church to share our faith in Christ as Lord with those still walking in the darkness of the ruler of this evil world. Cool off passions for the deceitfulness of sins commonly found among disobedient children. We pray in the precious name of Jesus our Lord. Amen.
