Weekly Prayer – Loving Each Other

Gracious God, help us to love each other fervently.

Grow our love so deep that it is able and willing to overcome and forgive a multitude of misgivings.

Inspire a spirit of hospitality in each of us and enable us to cheerfully share our home.

We acknowledge that you have given each of us spiritual gifts.

Help us to put our own needs aside and use those gifts to serve one another well. We will rely on the strength and energy You supply.

We pray that everything we do within this family unit will bring you glory through the One who lives in us. Amen
