Prayer based on Matthew 22:36. Themes: Love, God’s commands, priority
Dear God, as I come before you today, I ask for your guidance and wisdom. Just as the disciples asked Jesus which commandment was the greatest, I too seek your guidance on how to live a life that pleases you. Help me to prioritize your commandments and to love you with all my heart, soul, and mind. May I also love my neighbor as myself, as this is the second greatest commandment. Thank you for your love and grace, and for showing me the way to live a life that honors you. Amen.
Verse: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?”
