Praying with Paul: 'Living in Love'

Romans 12:9-15

Dear Father, empowering God,

Let my love be genuine for everyone in heaven and on earth. Help me hate what is evil at all times and everywhere. Help me hold fast to what is good, the old and the new.

May I love my fellow disciples with brotherly affection. May I show them greater honor than they show me.

Let my zeal not cool. May it blaze with energy from your Spirit.

May I rejoice in hope and be patient in tribulation. Let me be constant in prayer. May I contribute liberally to the needs of your holy people. Help me be very hospitable.

And Lord, help me to bless those who persecute me. Help me to bless them, not to curse in return.

In the name and authority of Jesus I boldly come, asking these things according to his will. Amen.
