Because He First Loved Us

    Because He Loved Us First
    19 We love him, because he first loved us. —1 John 4:19 (KJV)

    O LORD, our love originates in Jesus—the author of love.
    You are love and you loved us first, so we may know love.
    You love us individually and atoned for our sin.

    O LORD, you love us in our sin and rebellion against you.
    You love us despite the pain we cause others. You love us in our mess.
    It is your love—that selfless, self-sacrificing love, which allows us to love others.

    O LORD, we ask you to teach us to better love one another.
    It is an overflow of your love for us that allows us to love other people.
    Please soften our hearts to love and proclaim your love to those who need to hear it.

    May God's will be done always and forever.
    Ih Jesus' name.
    Amen​
