“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NLT)




Love is patient and kind;

it is not jealous

or boastful

or proud

or rude.

It does not demand its own way.

It is not irritable,

and it keeps no record of being wronged.

It does not rejoice about injustice

but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.


Love never gives up,

never loses faith,

is always hopeful,

and endures through every circumstance.


– 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NLT)






Dear Lord,

help me truly love.


Help me remember Your endless patience with me;

help me to look deep into myself and to remove what is not from You;

help my words and actions be gentle and thoughtful;

help me be humble and see the good in all others;

help me speak words that are easy on the ear and on the heart;

help me forgive others as You forgive me;

help me always stand up for what is right and good;

help me always be a welcoming refuge for those around me;

help my heart continually beat with pure love…for You…and for others.





[inspiration for today’s prayer: from www.marriagemissions.com – a site well worth visiting!]






Lord Jesus, help me be more like You;

help me love like You want me to love!
