I give thanks, O gracious God, for all the insights I’ve received
I am grateful for the ways that John has helped me to believe,
for your Spirit has confirmed his message, too.
What a joy and inspiration, Lord, to know that you inspired
the disciple Jesus loved to write these things.
And the fact that John was an eyewitness to all that transpired
reinforces my faith in the King of kings.
Thank you, God, for all the ways that you have made the good news known,
and for every truth that I have read or heard.
Through John’s Gospel in particular my faith in Christ has grown,
for I’ve come to know him as the living Word.
