“Mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.” Jude 1:2
Abba, our Most Holy Father, you are our God who never cease to bless us with your mercies, peace and love. We are very thankful not just today but all the time, for your loving-kindness is always and forever. You provide us the necessities of life in a good and honest way for us to live with dignity and for us to use them in our ministries and in helping others. Your marvelous works of perfecting our souls through seen and unseen ways are building us up in hope, faith and love. You allow us to go through pain and sufferings for us to become overcomers. When you close a door to prevent us from going where we should not go, you open more doors of manifold blessings for us to access the perfect ways you prepared for perfecting us in holiness. You enlighten our limited insight for us to see your manifold blessings you predestined for your obedient children. You purify our impure thoughts for us to comprehend your powerful words which will give us wisdom and knowledge to fulfill our Christian duties. Oh God, how great is the riches of your grace for us! Enable us to impart these great gifts that would encourage them to know you as our God gracious and merciful. Amen.
