You are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love. Nehemiah 9:17 (NIV)
Christ says, “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.” John 13:34
Sweet Holy Spirit, we are beholden to your amazing grace and abounding love. Your mercy reaches as far as the west is from the east. By your mercy, we can love one another as you love us. Forgive our fiery darts of anger against our neighbor, and replace their sting with comforting peace. Amen.
