A Prayer for the Restoration of Love
So he answered and said, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’ ” (Luke 10:27 NKJV)
Father, in the name of the Lord Jesus, we want to thank You for giving us the opportunity to approach your throne of grace for our needs. We recognize that we need You to lead and guide us into all truth. We live in an age of apathy, indifference, and unforgiveness. In this age, the souls of humanity are tried so much so that the love of many grows cold. Provide for the Body of Christ a fresh revelation of what it means to love You and our neighbors. Help us to rekindle our faith, trust, and passion to express our love for You and others in tangible and meaningful ways so that someone’s life will be changed as a result. Help us to grow in the wisdom and understanding that we cannot claim to be walking in love and disconnecting ourselves from one another. Make it plain to our hearts that we are one as You and Christ are one. Remind us that love is not just something we say; it is what we do in thought, word, and deed. Give us the knowledge that love is the real power we are to seek. Thank You Father for hearing this prayer. We know that You always hear and will answer the prayers of the righteous. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
