Lord God, thank You for Your great and mighty love shown to us through the arrival and sacrifice of Your precious Son. Thank You for the opportunity You give us to know Him fully. Please help me to live out of a growing love for You. Show me how to love others the way that You love. I pray this all in Jesus’s name I pray, AMEN.
