EXAMPLE PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank you for this opportunity to grow together and learn about the energy source of love, the force that is your nature. May we consider this week how our bodies react to our activations of love. May we hear you in the soft whisper in our hearts, helping us to develop healthy connections, that we may become all you intend us to be, in faith and confidence. All for your kingdom, precious Jesus. We love you. Amen.
