Compassionate God, I thank You for loving me. Thank You for saving me. Thank You for breathing breath into my body and filling me with life. Please stay close to me. Remind me constantly of Your love, and fill me with a spirit of gratitude.
Open my heart to the needs of people around me—even those I don’t know. Take my heartfelt concern and intervene for them as only You can. Grant us the power to forgive, and liberate us to live the life You have given us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
