As I age, I am constantly reminded, O God, of my transitory stay on earth and your eternal reign in heaven. Give me a sense of my place before you as I seek your will.
Thank you for sending Jesus as the demonstration of your love. I love you, Father. I love you for who you are and what you have done. I love you for what you have promised. I love you for the blessings you shower upon me. I love you for giving me hope. I love you because you first loved me. I love you because you are worthy of all love. But I confess that my love is not as strong as yours, so please, fill me with your love by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Almighty and everlasting Father, I believe that because you have adopted me into your family that death will never claim me because I am yours through Jesus, your son and my Lord, risen from the dead.
Lord, I confess that I have not been on fire for you as often as I would have liked. Please kindle in me a renewed zeal and passion for you and your work in the world.
