Prayer of the Day

Daily Prayer

February 28th, 2015
""Jesus said to his disciples; 'You have heard that it was said, you shall love your neighbour and hate your enemy. But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you so that you may be children of your Father in Heaven.'"" Matthew 5 : 43

Loving others is not an easy thing to do,  especially if the other is someone who is hard to love or treats us with scant regard.  We try to love them as God loves us – God has no favourites – we are all his children.  It’s easy to love others who love us but real love is that which includes everybody and requires us to treat them with real affection and friendship.

Prayer Lord, I can never come to this type of loving without your help. God commands us to be perfect as he is perfect and he loves all people so we ask in prayer the grace never to reject any person but to go out in love to each one as God does to us. Amen
