~Scripture Sentence~

“Those  who love me will keep my word,” Jesus promises, “and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.”

John 14:23




O God,

you have prepared for those who love you

joys beyond our understanding:

pour into our hearts such love for you,

that, loving you above all else,

we may obtain your promises

that exceed all we can desire;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.
