The Love Prayer

An example of how to pray through the Scriptures:

Lord, Please help me to be patient,
Help me to be kind,
Help me to shake this envy, and not be boastful,
Help me to be humble and not proud,
Help me to honor others and not to be self-seeking,
Help me be very slow to anger,
Help me to banish all records that I keep of wrong,
Help me to rejoice in truth and shun evil,
Help me to always protect those whom you have entrusted to me,
Help me to always trust,
Help me to always have hope,
Help me to persevere,
Because love never fails.
This, I know, remains – faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.

– based on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, 13
