"There is no limit to love's forbearance,
to its trust, its hope, its power to endure.
Love never fails.
There are in the end three things that last:
faith, hope and love,
and the greatest of these is love."
1 Corinthians 13:7-13
Jesus, you taught us how to love.
You showed us the way.
You love us so completely and so perfectly.
Your love never fails us.
We trust in you.
Help us to love as you love.
You always give and give and give.
We are so grateful for your many, many blessings.
You came to earth to save us from death.
You did not have to come.
You showed how much you love us.
We do not understand this.
Why do you love us so much?
We do not understand what is happening.
Show us your plan of salvation.
Give us the understanding of why you came.
Help us to love each other.
We are so busy in our own little worlds.
We are all by ourselves.
Help us to reach out and love others.
Help us to think of others.
Strengthen our faith in you.
Help us to share our faith with others.
Strengthen our hope in the resurrection.
Help us to say words of hope to those we meet today.
Grant us eternal life one day.
Give us life today. Give us your life today.
Give us that hope.
Give to us, O Lord, all that we need.
We need help, O Lord.
Hear our prayer.
