Praying with Paul: 'The Qualities of Love'

Wednesday, April 27, 2022

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Dear Father, give me love!

May I one day possess fully all the qualities of love, as did your son, Jesus, the Messiah!

May I be patient and kind, not jealous or boastful, not arrogant or rude, not insisting on my own way, not ever irritable or resentful.

May I rejoice always in what is right, never in anything that is wrong.

Help me to bear all things and endure whatever I must, to trust in all circumstances, and to be hopeful in all trials.

By Jesus's authority I come to you, asking. Amen.
