Gracious Father,
It is through your Son’s sacrifice for us that we know what love is, and are able to love one another. It is through your Spirit’s presence that we have confidence before you. It is through your Spirit’s power that we can overcome the world. Strengthen us for love and obedience that we might abide in you and you in us. Amen.
