1 Corinthians 13:4-7 “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
Father, because love is patient…
Help us to be slow to judge, but quick to listen. Hesitant to criticize, but eager to encourage, remembering your endless patience with us.
Because love is kind…
Help our words to be gentle and our actions to be thoughtful. Remind us to smile and to say “Please” and “Thank You” because those little things still mean so much.
Because love does not envy or boast, and it is not proud…
Help us have a heart that is humble and sees the good in others. May we celebrate and appreciate all that we have and all that we are, as well as doing the same for those around us.
Because love is not rude or self-seeking…
Help us to speak words that are easy on the ear and on the heart. When we are tempted to get wrapped up in our own little world, remind us there’s a great big world out there full of needs and hurts.
Because love is not easily angered and keeps no record of wrongs…
Help us to forgive others as You have forgiven us. When we want to hold onto a grudge, gently help us release it so we can reach out with a hand of love instead.
Because love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth…
Help us stand up for what is right and good. May we defend the defenseless, and help the helpless. Show us how we can make a difference.
Because love always protects and always trusts…
Help us to be a refuge for those around us. When the world outside is harsh and cold, may our hearts be a place of acceptance and warmth.
Finally, because love always perseveres…
Help our hearts continually beat with love for You and others. Thank You for this day and for showing us what Love really means.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen
