PRAYER FOR LOVE
O Lord, we thank you for this wonderful gift of our love
which You have generously granted us
and which allows us to build
a true communion of persons between us —
-provided we remain ever open to You,
the Source of all love.
Help us to continue to love each other
and accept each other unconditionally,
as we get to know each other better.
Make us generous in giving and humble in receiving.
Enable us to communicate to one another
all our joys, sufferings, and desires
and all our hopes, sorrows, and difficulties.
Give us the power of Your Love
that we may forget self
and live for each other
so that we may have truly one spirit,
in preparation for the time
when we will be one with You in eternal Joy.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
