Prayer for Monday, March 23

Day 23 : God is love

Scripture for reflection: 1 John 4:7-12

Prayer: God of love,
In Jesus you have shown us what love can look like. So often our world offers up
shallow replicas that pale in comparison with the determined love of Jesus. He
touched lepers, he ate and drank with those who were outcasts, and he offered
forgiveness where others would not. I thank you, God, for the depth of love that
you have shown for the world; a love that encompasses all people. Help me to
mirror that love to all I meet and to extend it to those I will never meet. Amen.
