God is AMAZING and we need to continue to find ways to tap into His love. Below are a few web sites that may be of interest to you. When we are filled with God’s love to the point we feel it with every breath we take, we are able to love ourselves just the way we are, and just as important we are then more capable of loving others for who they are.
We encourage you to explore these sample sites, some even provide Apps for your cell phone. Keep searching and with the help of the Holy Spirit you will be guided to the right places, to the prayers that are right for you.
