Prayer

Love

…your Father in heaven is perfect (Matthew 5:48; NLT).

‘Love your neighbour as yourself’ (Mark 12:31; NLT).

“Love your enemies!” (Luke 6:35; NLT).

To acquire wisdom is to love oneself (Proverbs 19:8; NLT).


Father,
It’s easy to love you,
For you are perfect.

Your ways, deeds,
Will, laws,
Power, and love
Are perfect.

Please help me
To grow in wisdom,
So I can love others,
Including my enemies –
However difficult that is,
And even love myself –
Which is the hardest task of all.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
