1 Corinthians 13:8-13
Dear Father, O God of love!
Let me possess love, for love never ends. I know that prophecy, tongues, and knowledge will pass away, for they are all incomplete and unfinished.
When the complete and perfect comes, everything incomplete and unfinished will be gone.
Enable me to put away the things of childhood - the way I reasoned, the way I spoke - and help me become mature. Now I see through a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall understand, even as I have been fully understood.
Faith, hope, and love are the truly enduring qualities, but you proclaim love the greatest. Fill me with love!
In the name of the loving Jesus and by his authority I come to you, asking these things according to his will. Amen.
