Prayers of Gratitude (part 4)

Unconditional Love

38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21

Heavenly Father, today we want to thank You for Your unconditional love. Nothing can separate us from Your love and yet many times we do not believe this truth from Your Word, the Bible. We struggle to feel and understand Your unconditional love because we don’t experience it anywhere else in our lives. Others will always let us down or disappoint us at one time or another. No earthly person, aside from You, Jesus, is able to love us perfectly and unconditionally. And sometimes we project our earthly relationships onto You.

However, You are not like any of our other relationships. We can put our full trust in Your love and know that You will always be there for us and love us unconditionally, no matter what we do or what happens to us. 

Empower us to grasp how high and deep and wide is Your love for us. Your love is not just a generic love for the entire world, but is also a very personal love directed to us as well. You love us. Let us repeat that to allow that truth to sink into our minds, hearts and souls. You. Love. Us. And Your love knows no limits, bounds or conditions. Thank You, Lord, for Your unconditional love. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
