A prayer of true love…

True love demands that we want what is best for the beloved. As Christians, our love for others should be manifest in a desire for them to possess the highest good: the friendship of God. If you don’t wish God’s friendship for a person then you do not wish what is best for them. To this end, let us make the words of Saint Paul in his letter to the Philippians our own:

And this is my prayer:
that your love may increase ever more and more
in knowledge and every kind of perception,
to discern what is of value,
so that you may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,
filled with the fruit of righteousness
that comes through Jesus Christ
for the glory and praise of God.

Amen.
