You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
Eternal God, you created us in your perfect and unconditional love for us, giving us dominion over all the earth. Even after our act of disobedience, you restored us in your sight, watching over us, delivering us from bondage of sin by Jesus’ sacrificial death and giving us eternal life for all believers, eligible to be enriched with your grace in Jesus our Lord. Salvation is for those who follow Jesus through complete faith in your promises, and who are obedient to your Holy Will.
Our Lord Jesus taught us to be holy and he gave us your new covenant to be strictly adhered to and faithfully observed. Which is, to love our God with complete fervor and sincerity and with our entire beings, for only by loving you with all our strength and spirit, with all our mind and senses, can we be Jesus’ true and faithful followers and disciples. It is only through Jesus that we get access to you, our Heavenly Father.
We pray and plead for your assistance, for we are sinners since birth and it is only by grace through faith in the death, burial, and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, that we, who are members of His Body, have been cleansed from sin, made children of God, and clothed in the righteousness of Christ, himself. It is only through Jesus that we can be forgiven and embraced as your children. It is in Christ’s perfection that we can be imputed with his nature and love and we seek this in Jesus’ Name. Amen
