Hello, Abba. Tonight I give thanks for our relationship. For your pursuit and love. But Father, I have been feeling like a lost sheep lately. I feel like I am in a swirl of many voices who tell me what Your voice says. At first our relationship was a lot of receiving and now it feels like I can’t feel that part of you anymore. Abba, I feel and see your love for others. Fill me with your love, comfort me. I am not so old in this faith and need your help to lift some of the burdens I bring from my earthly relationships into ours. I am learning from you. I love you, Abba, and give thanks for your care. Amen.

Abba, the depths and span of your goodness, wisdom, and grace are unknowable and I give thanks for the opportunity to take to heart what I can of your character. I come humbly before you knowing the things to which I am called, knowing the ways in which I am unqualified, and pray that through me your purpose is served anyway. When I doubt, it is not in you, but in my faithfulness, so again I give thanks for your grace, Father. My heart overflows with love, love I see in the love you have for myself and humanity. A love I seek to understand more deeply through the Trinity. I strive to love as you love, forgive as you forgive, and serve as you serve. Holy Father, bless me with the capacity to which I can handle your love for myself and others. Bring me closer to you so that your will is mine. Amen.
Lord, Abba, Immanu’el, I give thanks that you are with us. Blessed is humanity to be in relationship with you; grateful are we to be dwelling in and responsible for a world brought to life by you. I give thanks for Your holiness, that it is impossible to know any aspect of you fully beyond the glimpses the Spirit gives us. With gratitude I will pursue better knowing you throughout my life, trusting in you and acting in better obedience to Your call. Amen.
