Dear Jesus, how do I love you more? How do I more fully understand the weight of your sacrifice on my behalf? Abide with me, Lord, you in me and I in you. Let my spirit commune with your Holy Spirit until I comprehend all my limited mind can hold. Show me who you are. Show me more of how you love your children. Show me how to apply that to my everyday experience. Show me how to obey and follow your teaching. Grow my ability to keep your commandments. Speak your master plan over my day. Help my heart to take in your instruction to perceive it clearly. Forgive my wandering mind, Lord. Prosper our abiding time together. Make it fruitful for my spirit and for your kingdom. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” (John 15: 10-11)
