Lord, I Pray For Love


Lord, I Pray For Love

Lord, I pray You'll give me love
The kind You have for me,
The love that led You to the cross
To suffer agony,
The love that led You, Lord, to die
To save my soul for Thee.

The love that is not peevish,
Envious or proud,
Resentful, rude, or boastful,
That struts itself about
Like the haughty peacock;
Arrogant and vain,
A love that is not selfish,
Demanding its own way.

Lord, I pray You'll give me love
That's patient, kind, and pure,
That won't dishonor others,
Lord, give me love like Yours. 

Lord, give me love that sees the good
And does not look for faults
That won't accuse or criticize
But loves and judges not.

A love that sees that God is He
Who's always in control,
That You arrange the destiny
You've planned for every soul.

A love that walks with You each day
Believing from their maze
Of storms and trials You will weave
A royal robe of grace.

Lord, help me know that even though
I call You Lord of Life,
If I do not have Thy love
I walk not in Thy light.
And even though I do great things
And preach in Jesus name
If I have not got Thy love,
I've done it all in vain.

Lord, I pray You'll give me love,
The kind You have for me,
Let me love the way You love
And give my life to Thee.
In Jesus' name, amen.

Prayer
Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us so much that You allowed Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ to be born as a man, so that He could become a living sacrifice to atone for our sins by suffering shame, humiliation, and death on a Roman cross. We can hardly fathom such a love that would die to save the souls of people who did not love You back. But Thy word says that while we were still in sin (rebellion against God) Christ died for us. 
Lord, thank You for what You did for us, for through Your suffering You offer us eternal life with You forever when we receive You into our hearts. You love us as if we were Your only child to love and You promise You will never leave or forsake us.
Dear Lord Jesus, may each person reading this prayer not let thy suffering and dying for their soul have been in vain, but let them receive You into their heart as their Lord & Savior. For Thy word promises that "All who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved." Thank You, Lord. We love You,
In Jesus' name, amen.
