Day 21

A Prayer For Holy Love

“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.”

Galatians 5:6

Lord God,

Your love is seen in creation. We see Your love in the cross and in Your resurrection when out of love for us, You ended the power of death. We celebrate Your love realized in your willingness to gift, empower, comfort and heal us with your Holy Spirit. You are love. As we follow You, may our faith show up more and more in love. May we love not only in the easy choices, but in the difficult ones as well. May we love with truth, kindness, holiness and compassion. May we love not with conflict avoidance, but with a deep authentic commitment to all people. May our love allow each person to feel seen and to know themselves as loved by You, Lord. For Your kingdom and in Your name we pray. Amen.
