I come before You today in need of Your love and guidance. I confess that I have not always felt worthy of love and have struggled to believe that I am truly loved by You and by others. But I know that Your love is boundless and unconditional. I pray that You would fill my heart with the assurance of Your love.
Help me to understand the depth of Your love for me and to receive it fully. Give me the strength and the courage to love others as You have loved me. I trust in Your plan for my life and know that Your love will guide me and sustain me through all of life’s trials and challenges.
I pray this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
