Praying for love in my children and my home…. “Lord let your love overflow onto our children and onto your people. Allow your love through us to be an example of Christ’s love to our children and those we come into contact with. Let us allow the Holy Spirit to fill us with your love and not be hindered by the things of this world and the worries and stresses that can encroach on really loving like Christ. Let our home be a place of love that is patient and kind…”

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
