Biblical Prayers - No. 2

L O V E

By the grace of my Lord Jesus Christ received by saving faith in Him in all the Scriptures:

Lord Jesus, I praise you for teaching me the nature of divine love. Thank you for enabling me to love you and to love others, because you loved first. You have given me an example, and access to divine power to follow in your steps.

Lord, I choose to love you with all my heart, all my mind, all my soul and all my strength. Your love has been spread throughout my heart by the Holy Spirit, and I desire earnestly to respond to you with the love with which you first loved me.

Knowing this to be your will, I choose to love all my fellow Christians with a pure heart fervently and unfeignedly.

I will love my wife as my Lord Jesus Christ loves the Church, His chosen bride. I will nourish her as a father teaches his children, and cherish her as a nurse cares for her charges. Help us to show to a watching world the marvellous relationship between Christ and His Church in this way.

I will love the person I am in contact with, and treat him as I would wish him to treat me. I will care for him according to the need of the moment, no matter how this person behaves, and no matter what the cost is to me.

And, most difficult of all, I choose to love my enemies, to do good to those who seem to hate me and to pray for those who hurt me. Show others in this way, what a Christian transformed by the renewing of the mind is like. Make it a powerful testimony to friends and enemies alike. Deliver me from the fearful sin of an unforgiving spirit, no matter how others treat me.

Lord, all praise, honour and glory belongs to you, because I could not love like this without you. Now I can love, because your love is shed abroad in my heart by the Holy Spirit who is given to me.
