The law of love is such that when we love God, He is quick to respond to all that we ask. One can only love God when one accepts the love of God as a free gift.
What is the relationship between my love of God and my love of self and others? Do I see how dependent I am on God to be loved and to love in return?
O gracious God, I am loved by You because I am known by You. I am known by you because You made me in an act of Love.
