Gracious and loving God, we give thanks for the abundant love that you have poured out on us and on all creation. Quicken our hearts and strengthen our wills as we seek to pour out your love and grace on all people. Give us courage to resist those who would narrow your love and limit your grace. Help us to bear witness to your love not only with our lips but in our lives. We pray this in the name and spirit of Jesus Christ. Amen.
