This prayer is courtesy of Scot McKnight, with whom Pastor Casey Tygrett and I got to share some time this week. If you haven’t prayed a “written” prayer in a while, try this on for size. Consider starting each day this week with:
O Lord, you have taught us that without love whatever we do is worth nothing: Send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts your greatest gift, which is love, the true bond of peace and of all virtue, without which whoever lives is accounted dead before you. Grant this for the sake of your only Son Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
