26th September 2013 – I ask you, Lord Jesus, to develop in me, your lover, an immeasurable urge towards you, an affection that is unbounded, a longing that is unrestrained, a fervor that throws discretion to the winds!…There is no one more blessed than he who dies because he loves so much. No creature can love God too much. Richard Rolle.

3rd September 2013 – Lord, please grant that every Christian marriage will be filled with a growing love that reflects your love for the church.
2nd September 2013 – However busy I may be today Lord God of my salvation, and no matter what challenges I face, let me not forget your wonders and lose my song. May every part of this day be set to music!
