Father God, Thou art the only true God and Thou art the only God men have ever been taught about, Who condescends to love His people as a father.
Help us, O God, to be obedient children, but help us also to cast out of our hearts and minds all things that might hinder us in a whole and holy love for Thee.
As Thou didst love the world, help us to love. As Thou didst give Thyself for us, help us to give ourselves for Thee.
For Christ’s sake,
