Gracious and loving God, thank you for Jesus and your master plan for salvation and peace with you. This is advent season, Father, bless our days as they lead us to the celebration of the birth of Christ. May we not be so busy that we omit spending time with our Lord and savior. May we abide in your love. I ask in the precious name of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.” (John 15:10 ESV)
