Context: Today’s prayer continues to reflect on the theme of how difficult I find it to believe that God loves me. It links back to “A question”, posted a few days ago. Here is a link for those who want to check it out: https://wp.me/p45bCr-d0s.

I love you, LORD (Psalm 18:1; NLT).

I love you, Lord –
Please help me

That you love me.
