1 John 3:11-16

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space clothed in the armour of your light. You remind us that we live within the guides of your grace, mercy, and love. You invite us to spend time with you, so we will be filled with good thoughts towards you, ourselves, and others.

Thank you, Jesus, for revealing to us God’s love for us, and how we are to love one another. We are a part of your community; we are called to love one another. Thank you for your compassion, love, grace, peace, and mercy that encompasses us. May we receive your grace, mercy, and love so we may love ourselves and your creation.

I seek to think, act, and speak in righteousness today, Gracious LORD, and thank you for…

We will walk in the light of your love, Gracious LORD. May no evil thought darken our dreams or remain uncounted within us. Search the landscape of our hearts. Sweep us, and create new hearts within us.

With joy we praise you!
