Almighty Father, who is worthy of our devotion, kindle in us a fervent love for you, and help us to nurture that spark so that it becomes a flame, that our hearts would be wholly devoted to you before all others and with all our being, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who live with you and the Holy Spirit together in perfect charity. Amen.
'He said to him, "'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the greatest and first commandment."' - Matthew 22:37-38
