Gracious Father, you have poured out your kindness and love on us through Jesus, showing it to us through the cross where your wrath was drained to the dregs and your life was born in us through Christ. Lord we are yours, please continue to make us so. May we serve your Son with gladness, looking to love and serve your people; longing for more to know him; waiting with hopefulness for his return. Thank you for your church and the way that they have shown love to us in the last few days. Please help us to do the same for others also.
