A reflection on the need to love

A reflection for the day

Matthew 5:44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you,

A reflection on love

Heavenly Father,

We are able to say that there are many situations in your  world that are undesirable, and we are able to say that those situations are a cause for concern. Those situations are ones that need a careful consultation, and those situations are ones where human lives are at risk.

These areas of concern are ones that are likely to spiral out of control, and these areas of concern are ones that need immediate action. There are many cases where Man is inadequately protected, and there are many  cases where humanitarian aid is required. There are many of us who desire to see that these situations are resolved in a peaceful way.

Heavenly Father, there are times in our lives when we feel vulnerable, and there are times in our lives when we feel unsafe. Many desire to know, and many desire to feel the love that you have for us, which we know is an everlasting love, and which we know is a love that is ever present.

The love that we have for you, Our Heavenly Father, is one that you desire should fill our hearts, is one that you desire should fill our minds,is one that you desire should fill our souls, and is one that you desire should fill our strength. A  love such as this, which is an awesome love, is one that enables all to put you, our Heavenly Father, first. A love such as this, which is an awesome love, is a  love that is one that will and does enrich all relationships, and a love such as this, which is an awesome love, is a love that enables all to put all others  first.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time, we ask you, that you are able to help us to see a way forward clearly  to love one another. Heavenly Father, it is at this time, we ask you, that you are able to help us to see a way forward clearly so that we are able to forgive one another, and we ask that Man is able to clearly see the error of a way.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see that there is not a common agreement about the crisis in Syria, and that is of a concern, and not the outcome we are looking for. Heavenly Father, if there was more love in your world we would not be faced with the situations that exist in your countries, which are often described as war-torn.

Heavenly Father, you are all seeing and you are all knowing, and you know of all situations where a prayer needs to be upheld in order for peace to prevail, and in order for love to co-exist .

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that Mankind can resolve their differences; we hope and we pray that Man can put a neighbour first; we hope and we pray that Man is able to turn to you; and we hope and we pray that Man is able to perceive, and that Man is able to discern, your power, and your might, and all of your glory.Heavenly Father,you are a loving Father who cares for each and everyone of us always.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to you now all that has been said, in the name of yourself, Our Heavenly Father, and in the name of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and in the name of your Holy Spirit, who is, and who was, and who will always be, the most supreme and the most absolute power and being, that advocates for all who are of this world that we live on, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

  1. We are part of the family of God and as such, we are mostly able to portray this love in everyday relationships with family and friends. Indeed it is sad to think that some people ignore their families in times of crisis and our prayers need to be with them as well as those countries that are torn by hatred
