Morning Prayer #3: May I Reflect Your Love

Dear Lord, I pray for one thing: Let me reflect your love today.

Help me to be the love I want to see in the world today. Help me shine your light with the warmth and kindness you would show your children.

Let me be unconditional love, equal love, unflinching love. Have me be love in the face of hatred, fear, and indifference. The kind of love that would save the neighbor who would harm me.

Make me be the love that you would have in your kingdom. See me spread that love with such conviction that it spreads to those around me in my community. Allow me to show love so fiercely that it furthers your kingdom on Earth.
