Prayer

The royal law

Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2; NLT).

If you really fulfil the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbour as yourself,” you are doing well (James 2:8; NIV).

Return, O my soul, to your rest (Psalm 116:7; NLT).


Lord God,
No matter what this day may bring,
Please help us to fulfil your royal law,
By bearing one another’s loads
As best we can,
Till we return
To rest with you
In sleep.

Lord God,
No matter what this life may bring,
Please help us to fulfil your royal law,
By bearing one another’s loads
As best we can,
Till we return
To rest with you
In death.

Amen.
