Prayer Request

The love we have for others is rooted in the love that God has for us. "We love because he first loved us." - 1 John 4:19, it is the love of God that compels us to love others, to serve them and to seek their well-being.

God's love for us is unconditional, unending, and limitless. He loves us just as we are, with all of our flaws and imperfections. This love is what gives us the ability to love others in the same way, to extend grace and forgiveness, and to seek the best for those around us.

When we focus on the love that God has for us, it becomes easier to love others. As we experience the love of God in our own lives, it becomes a source of inspiration and motivation to love others as well.

Let us ask ourselves, are we experiencing the love of God in our lives? And are we extending that love to others? Let us pray for the grace to know and experience the love of God, and to extend that love to others in all of our relationships.

Pray with us

Dear God, thank You for Your love for us. Help us to experience the love You have for us, and to extend that love to others. Give us the grace and wisdom to love others as You have loved us, seeking their well-being and extending grace and forgiveness. Amen.
