Abiding In His Love

Abiding In His Love

Heavenly Father, I come to You now in the Name of my Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. Heavenly Father, I am abiding in Your Word, holding fast to Your teachings and living in accordance with them. It is my desire to be Your true disciple. Heavenly Father, because You are the Vine and I am a branch living in You, I bear much fruit. Apart from You, I can do nothing. Your Son, Jesus, said “If you live in Me and My Words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you” (John 15:7 AMP). When I bear much fruit, You, Father, are honored and glorified. By Your grace that I have received, I will show and prove myself to be a true follower of Your Son, Jesus. He has loved me, just as You, Father, have loved Him. I am abiding in that love. Heavenly Father, You have assured me that if I keep Your commandments, I will abide in Your love and live in it, just as Your Son, Jesus, obeyed Your commandments and lived in Your love. He told me these things, that Your joy and delight may be in me and that my joy and gladness may be full measure, complete and overflowing. This is Your commandment: that we love one another just as You have loved us. Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word for this truth sets me free. I am born of You and I do not deliberately, knowingly or habitually practice sin. Your nature abides in me; and I cannot practice sinning because I am born of You. I have hidden Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You. Heavenly Father, may Christ Jesus through my faith dwell in my heart. It is my desire to be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, that I may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints (Your devoted people, the experience of that love) what is breadth and length and height and depth of it. I pray in the Name of Jesus, that I may know this love that surpasses knowledge, that I may be filled to the measure of all Your fullness. Now to You Who is able to do immeasurably more than I ask or imagine, according to Your power that is at work within me, to You be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus throughout generations, forever and ever. Amen!
