4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first.

5 Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.

As we, Agapé Chicago pray, we recognize as congregation of different peoples that we all have different struggles. Yet our main problem is the same for each of us: We love Jesus far too little. Jesus, we confess that you are worthy of all of our love. We repent of how we can replace you with our thoughts about you or that we can grow cold in our seeming obedience to your commands. Help us remain fixed in our hearts upon your value and wonder. Our very existence depends upon you Jesus, our salvation is found in you, and our Hope centers around all that you are. Help us to keep our eyes fixed on you the author and perfecter of our faith. Through your Spriit Jesus, ignite a flame within our cold, dead hearts to keep our eyes ever fixed on you. We ask these things according to the grace you have for us in Jesus and so in His name we pray.
