Prayer

The way of love

Follow the way of love (1 Corinthians 14:1; NIV).

The gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult (Matthew 7:14; NLT).

Their wealth will not follow them into the grave (Psalm 49:17; NLT). 

Love is patient and kind (1 Corinthians 13:4; NLT).

Three things will last forever – faith, hope and love – and the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13; NLT).

 

God’s way of love is difficult,
Yet it’s the most rewarding path
Through life –
By far.

All other roads deceive us,
Promising wealth,
Or happiness,
Or power,
But leading nowhere
In the end,

Because these things
Can’t give meaning
Or fulfilment
To our lives.

So, Lord,
Please help me
To follow your way of love
Each day,
By being patient and kind
To everyone whose life I touch
In any way –
Without exception.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.
