Looking Ahead to 2014

Written by on January 2, 2014


Gracious God,

Your love puts no condition and knows no limits.

It embraces and envelops us totally, like the air we breathe.

It is life-giving in the most profound sense of the word.

Grant us grace to believe with all our hearts.

May this faith shape and permeate our personalities

and may it bear rich fruit in self-acceptance and love of our neighbor.

Let us become living witnesses of your love and truth and give you honor and glory.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son and our Lord, in whom all your love was revealed.

-Peter van Breeman
