Loving God, I read in Romans that nothing in life or in death can separate me from Your love and I am grateful. I know that You are with me in everything. Thank You for being present when things are good and especially when things are really bad. Merciful God, in the life of Jesus Christ, You have experienced all of what I may encounter today. Help me remember that I journey this life with the assurance of Your presence and love. Strengthen me to share Your love with others. Amen.
