A Sunday prayer

God,

you are love itself!

You have shown yourself to us

in so many ways,

yet all of them tell us of creative love,

that never changes.

Love which in the beginning

created the universe,

and brought mankind out of the earth

to live in glorious freedom!

Love which was crucified,

yet rises

with every generation

bringing new promises for the future!

Love which meets our needs

and gives us hope

through our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
