Prayers and Petitions




It (love) is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no account of wrongs. – 1 Corinthians 13:5

Inappropriate, disrespectful behavior cannot come out of love. A selfish heart cannot truly love someone else and seek to do what is good for others. But love expresses itself through being respectful towards others, lifting them up and always carrying more for what is best for others than itself.

Love is the foundation of a calm, patient attitude. When we treat people right and do not expect them to only do what we want or suit our plans, we are not easily angered. We show more tolerance to those whom we love. We know that we truly love someone if we do not keep records of their mistakes. This is exactly how God treats us. Because He is just, we have to ask for forgiveness when we sin, but once we do it, our Father not only forgives us, but He also forgets our sins and erases them from His records.


Glory and praises to Your Holy Name dear Lord for Your lavishing love towards me. You did not consider that it was too much to send Your Son to die in my place, so that I may live, and You amaze me by continuing to love me despite my faults and shortcomings. I am so amazed by Your love, and I want to give it all to You, love You with all my being and live to please You with everything I am and do. Thank You Lord Jesus that in Your great love for me, You endured tremendous rejection, mockery, torture, pain and even physical death, to adopt me in Your heavenly family. Father God, grant me the grace of tolerance. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen
