Faith, Hope and Love

HOLY FATHER, from whom all good things come, let the Christian gifts of faith, hope and love be more firmly established in my every day.

O God, I believe –

that you rule all things in wisdom and righteousness;
that you have called me to be your loyal servant;
that you have the right to call me to complete obedience to your will;
that in Jesus Christ you have shown me a way of salvation, so that I may be delivered from my sins;
that if I truly repent, you are willing to forgive and save me.

O God, I hope –

for your daily mercies to continue for the loosening of sin’s grip upon my will;
for my growth in grace and in true holiness from day to day;
for a more perfect holiness, when my earthly days are finished;
for a day when I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

O God, I love you –

who yourself are love;
who in love created me, and in love still cherish me;
who loved me so much that you sent your Son to suffer and die so that I might live with you;
who have commanded me to show my love to you by loving my neighbor for your sake.

Help me in my unbelief, O God; give me greater patience in my hope; and make me more faithful in my love. In loving let me believe and in believing let me love; and in loving and in believing let me hope for a more perfect love and a more unwavering faith, through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.
