A Prayer for Love

VICAR

Dear Readers of Country Squire Magazine, I trust that You are well and healthy. After last weekend’s festivities We can look forward to sunshine and summer, to happiness and love.

1 Corinthians 13:4-5:

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

1 John 4:16:

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.

The Bible says that God is love and that humans crave love from the moment of existence. But the word love describes an emotion with vastly differing degrees of intensity.

Four unique forms of love are found in Scripture. They are communicated through four Greek words (Eros, Storge, Philia, and Agape) and are characterised by romantic love, family love, brotherly love, and God’s divine love. We are urged to follow Jesus Christ’s command to “love one another.”

God Bless You and Your loved ones this Sunday. Have a great and peaceful week ahead.

Loving You is the best thing that has happened to me Oh Lord. You have stood by me ever since the fateful day that I accepted Your company. You have showered me with Your pure love, blessings, miracles, and divine protection. In fact, this prayer is only due to Your power. By which, You kept me alive to see today and to make a request. I pray, Father in Heaven that You open the eyes of my family and friends. And for the ones who love You like I do, Father keep both their eyes and mine open to Your devotion and adoration. I bless Your divine name for this deep and short prayer for love. In Jesus Name I Pray, Amen.
