I pray that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God.  - Ephesians 3:17-19

Dear Jesus, the Apostle Paul prayed that you and your unconditional love would dwell in our hearts and that we would grow more and more to know how pervasive your love really is.  Please do this for me and my closest friends and family so we love purely without giving up an inch of the truth. Help me comprehend how full and big your love really is.  Help me to view all people through your love.  By doing this, we will help others see their need for grace without personally judging them.  I will relax in your love whenever we recall the many failures with which we have plagued you.  Make your love the driver of my soul.  AMEN

Christ’s love is bigger than the universe.  No one can begin to exhaust the lessons it will teach him.
