Heavenly Father, you are love. You are the God of compassion. I come with reverence for who you are to ask that you make me a conduit of your love. Let something I do or say bring encouragement in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says ‘I know him’ but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected.” (1 John 2: 3-5a ESV)
