Every family in heaven and on the earth. — Eph 3:15 NET
One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.—In Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith.—Toward the administration of the fullness of the times, to head up all things in Christ – the things in heaven and the things on earth.
He is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters.—“Here are my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”—“Go to my brothers and tell them, ’I am ascending to my Father and your Father.’”
I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been violently killed because of the word of God and because of the testimony they had given…. Each of them was given a long white robe and they were told to rest for a little longer, until the full number was reached of both their fellow servants and their brothers who were going to be killed just as they had been.—That they would be made perfect together with us.

So pray this way: Our Father in heaven. — Matt 6:9 NET
Jesus… looked upward to heaven and said, “Father.”—“My Father and your Father.”
In Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith.—You did not receive the spirit of slavery leading again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself bears witness to our spirit that we are God’s children.
Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, who calls “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave but a son.
“At that time you will ask me nothing. I tell you the solemn truth, whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive it, so that your joy may be complete.”
“I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters.” says the All-Powerful Lord.
