Magnificent Love

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it
is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily
angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in
evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres."

(I Corinthians 13:4-7)

God, help me to be patient, kind, free of envy, not boastful or full of pride. Help me not to be rude or self-seeking. Help me not to have a quick temper or be a historian of wrongs done toward me or others. Help me never to delight in evil but to rejoice in your truth. Help me always to be protectful, always trust others, always hope and always persevere - and in doing those things, I will be "Love" just as You want me to be.
