Saturday Prayer 6

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endures forever. (Psalm 118:1)

If it is true that Your love endures forever, then give me the ability to see Your love that does not cease in times of difficulty any more than it crests in times of joy.

Thank You for Your love that endures when I wake each day, as it says in the Scripture:

His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. (Lamentations 3:22-23)

Thank You for Your love that endures through my ignorance and death in sin, as it says elsewhere:

Because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions. (Ephesians 2:4-5)

Thank You, LORD, for Your love that is expansive – it is big enough to reach all places in this earth:

The earth is full of His unfailing love. (Psalm 33:5)

Thank You for revealing Your love so perfectly in Jesus, as the Scriptures say:

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)

Thank You for Your love that covers over and forgives my failures:

As high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. (Psalm 103:11-12)

Thank You for Your love that does not leave us as subjects of a king or servants of a master, but calls us Your own sons and daughters, as it says:

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (1 John 3:1)

Even more, thank You that in Your love You call us friends:

I no longer call you servants…Instead, I have called you friends, for everything I have learned from My Father I have made known to you. (John 15:15)

Thank You, LORD Father, for Your love that not only endures but is beyond all measure, as we read:

How wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ…that surpasses knowledge. (Ephesians 3:18-19)

This day, I thank You for Your love that endures.
