We praise you because you are love.
Thank you that in your Son Jesus you made it perfectly clear what it means for you to be love; thank you that in him you showed us what it means for us to love like you love.
Take away our bent to sinning; take away our tendency to be self-centered and to be self-protecting.
Increase our desire and ability to be other-centered and to be self-giving.
Fill our lives with your kind of love so that we can live out our relationships in ways that show your kind of love.
