St. Paul's prayer for the Ephesians and for us is that we may know this love, that we may "have the strength to grasp the breadth and the length, the height and the depth; so that, knowing the love of Christ, which is beyond knowledge, you may be filled with the utter fullness of God" (Ephesians 3:18).
This prayer moves you away from thinking of God as an object, into a state of constantly being in His Love. It moves a person toward works of charity and of living your life for God.
St. Teresa of Avila, The Book of Her Life, ch. 15:5, p. 141.
