Praying from 1 John 4:21 relating to Love, Brotherhood, Commandment

Dear God, thank you for the commandment that we should love our brothers and sisters just as we love you. Please help us to show love and kindness to those around us, even when it’s difficult. Give us the strength to forgive and the courage to reach out to those who may be different from us. May our love for you overflow into our love for others, and may we always strive to be a reflection of your love in this world. Amen.

Verse: This commandment we have from him, that he who loves God should also love his brother.
