Prayer

The way of love

“Love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind” (Luke 10:27; NLT).

It is good when you obey the royal law as found in the Scriptures: “Love your neighbour as yourself” (James 2:8; NLT).

“Love your enemies!” (Matthew 5:44; NLT).

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

 

Lord,
Please help us to love both you,
And other people,

Our enemies,
And even our own selves;

For only by following
Your way of love

Can we fulfil the essence
Of your royal law.
