A February Prayer
God of our hearts,
thank you for your love
which surrounds us
in people and creation.
In this month of loving hearts,
we want to see you as you reveal yourself
to us through the eyes, the hands, the laughter,
tears and hearts of those who love us.
Help us to grow in our love for others as
you first loved us, so that we can be visible
signs of your presence in the world. Amen.
