Father, thank You for your unfailing love for us. Since we were children, You have loved us. It was You who taught us to walk, taking us by the arms; we did not realize it was You who healed us. And it was You who led us with cords of human kindness, and with ties of love. To us, You were like one who lifts a little child to the cheek, and You bent down to feed us. We love You, O Lord with all of our heart. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Hosea 11:1-4 New International Version
