Lord help us to love you today with all of our heart and to love our neighbors as ourselves. You have said this is highest on your priority and so it must be on ours as well. Help us Lord – these things are not natural to us but they are a part of the new creation you have made us – so our prayer is that we would each live today by the Spirit and not by the flesh. Help us Lord in these and all things to serve you and love you and to serve and love those whom you have given us in this life. In Jesus’ name – Amen.
