“O God, who have prepared fitting helps for us in our weakness, grant, we pray, that we may receive their healing effects with joy and reflect them in a holy way of life. Through the Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.”
God is our ever-present help. We know He is always there and we know we live in a sea of His grace. We know every breath we take is a gift from His boundless generosity. Today, let’s sit in His love.
Let’s think about Him all day. Look at the people you meet and know God’s fingerprints are all over them. Know them as beloved image-bearers of God. When we see anything else, we believe a false reality. We buy into something completely fabricated. The Truth is God’s nearness, His love for all, and His presence as the source of life.
We teach kids the song “Jesus Loves Me” because it is simple and easy to learn, but the truth in that song is a serious, life-affirming, marvelous truth. Jesus loves me, this I know, because the Bible tells me so, little ones to Him belong, they are weak but He is strong; Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me, YES, JESUS LOVES ME, the Bible tells me so.
Prayer points // Meditate on His love. Sit in it. Pray to understand the depths of His love for you.
