Lord, as I now draw nearer to You
I am aware of the poverty of my love
I have been generous with my love for myself
And things of this earth
Yet miserly in my love for my neighbor
Lord, transform my heart!
I ask not merely to love those easy to love
Help me to love those who are unlovable
Make me sensitive to the needs of others
Not on the basis of exchange
But in all unconditional giving.
Teach me to love others
The way they want to be loved
And not my own selfish view of loving
Most of all grant me the grace to love You
Above all things and all others.
Bible Inspiration: 1 John 4:8
The man without love has known nothing of God, for God is love.
