My Prayer – How Deep is Your Love (not song lyrics)

How deep is your love for me, with the full knowledge of who I am, my history of wrong doing, my self-centered and halfhearted motives and actions as well as all the aggressions I have yet to commit. Lord, you are merciful and loving.

Lord, you are merciful and loving.

I understand to the smallest degree as I love my children mostly independent of their actions – yet I find it easier to develop affection when we are in alignment.

You need no such crutch upon which your love must lean, as your love stands on its own two feet, unaided and not requiring my compliance. I am grateful and thank you for your independent and infinite love for me.
