Lord Jesus, thank you for sending your Holy Spirit to dwell within believers. Thank you for the bond He creates between me and my brothers and sisters in Christ. Thank you for the bond of your Holy Spirit among me and my children that is deeper and stronger than a mother’s love. Thank you for the sacred space He creates within our family circle in your precious name and powerful authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“Then Jonathan said to David, ‘Go in peace, because we have sworn both of us in the name of the Lord, saying, “The Lord shall be between me and you, and between my offspring and your offspring, forever.”‘ And he rose and departed, and Jonathan went into the city.” (1 Samuel 20:42 ESV)
