God you demonstrated your love for me in that while I was a sinner, Christ died for me. For you so loved the world, that you gave your only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. I give thanks to you, God of heaven, for your steadfast love endures forever. Father, thank you for loving me unconditionally! In Jesus name, Amen!
Romans 5:8; John 3:16; Psalms 136:26; Psalms 86:15
Lord I pray to be very careful to love you with all my soul, strength, and mind. I will walk in all your ways, to obey your commands, to hold fast to you and serve you all the days of my life. In Jesus name, Amen!
Josh. 22:5; John 14:15; John 4:19; Luke 10:27
I love others just as Jesus Christ loves me; my love towards others is unselfish; its unconditional and sincere. My love is patient and kind. My love does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. My love does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. I do not delight in evil, but I rejoice with the truth. My love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. God’s love in me towards others never fails. In Jesus name, Amen!
1 Corinthians 13:4-8; Ephesians 5:2a; 1 Peter 4:8; 1 Thessalonians 3:12
Lord the world tells us to love our friends and to hate our enemies. But you have instructed us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us; so that we may become the children of our Father in heaven. Your word says, if we love those who love us, what reward do we have? My love towards my enemies must be like Christ’s love towards all, including those who hated and persecuted Him. He died for those who loved Him and for His enemies. Therefore Father, I pray to love my enemies and do them good… expecting nothing in return. So that like Jesus Christ my reward will be great! I bless my enemies and curse them not! In Jesus name, Amen!
Matt. 5:43-45; Luke 6:35; Rom. 12:14
