As we hold people in our hearts for prayer, we experience love. Our humanity reaches out to them as we want all to be well. Held in our hearts, we are moved to ask God for their wellbeing.

God Loves You
He loved you when you were born
He loves you even though you don’t always love him
He loves you as you really are
And he loves what you will become
He loves you like a parent loves a child
He loves you as the best friend you’ll ever know
He doesn’t always love what you think, say or do
But he loves who you are
And he loves being loved by you

Greg Boyd discusses the answer to the questions: “What if violence is necessary to protect a loved one and how we as Christians can respond in a Christ-like manner?” for the Reknew.org blog.
