Jesus, Lord and Savior, lover of my soul, join me in this quiet time. Surge your loving presence into my time and space. Allow me to sense your arms around me. Grant me a seat at your feet as Mary did to listen to your words. Teach me again of how you love me. Teach me again to abide, remain in you. Speak to my heart and deepen my relationship with you. I ask in your precious name, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. 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: 9-11 ESV)
