June 3 Prayer
‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart,
all your soul, all your mind and all your strength.’
That’s the greatest commandment we know we are to follow.
Can we actually follow and obey this seemingly
impossible and greatest task from God?
‘For everyday we are put to test,
as sacrificial offerings we are given to God
And he takes us to himself.’
He has formed us from dust and oh, how back to dust we return
every time we fail to love wholly with every part of our being.
God gives us Grace and peace as a promise when we return to love.
When we let The Holy Spirit form and shape love within us.
It’s his creative power and gift to do so.
Pause a moment to see the hands of God reshaping your heart and your soul,
your mind and your body. See what it looks like and how beautiful it becomes.
‘Lord, awaken my heart to the shape of love and to the form it is to take.
Shape love in my heart and in my thoughts about myself and about others.
Help me to carefully watch what I let settle there in my mind.
Is it true, and noble or false and shameful?
Are my thoughts pure or impure, lovely or awful?
Lord, I give all I know of who I am to rise upward and
let your love take shape in my inner heart today.
Let love shape me in every way, in every moment of the day.
May I be a true sacrificial offering of love for you.’
