And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
We love because He first loved us.
1 John 4:16, 19 New International Version (NIV)
God of Love,
Almighty Father of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, You are Love. You loved me first and You are the one true Lover of my soul. I come before You in humble adoration, yet with bold confidence that You care for me. You gave Your only Son to die for my sins and I am reconciled to You by this sacrifice. I am redeemed! I live and have my being because of Your great love for me.
Thank You. Thank You, Lord God, for who You are and for all You do each day to demonstrate Your loving presence in my life. Not only have You forgiven my sin, You walk with me each moment and show me how to live and trust in You. You contend with my fears and doubts. You lift my head when I despair. You give me hope for the future. Thank You. Forgive my need for so much love, but I am so grateful that it overflows from Your bountiful blessings.
Bless me this day with Your perfect peace, strength and provision. Grant me favor to keep going. Heal my body and clear my mind as I try to keep it stayed on You. I pray to be made whole and useful to You for You alone are the Source of all that is good in my life. Guide me Great Jehovah! Feed me till I want no more.
In Jesus' name I pray.
