Yesterday morning, I wrote a little group of prayers about love. Here is my favourite…


This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins (1 John 4:10; NIV).

Thank you for loving me.

I don’t deserve your love,
For I am of no account.

Nor can I earn it,
As you need nothing from me at all.

Yet, to my amazement,
You love me anyway.

Still more astonishingly,  
You long for my love in return.

Lord, thank you for loving me,
And making it so easy to love you.
