Prayer based on Matthew 22:39. Themes: Love, Neighborly love, Self-love
Dear God, please help me to love my neighbor as myself. May I always treat others with kindness, compassion, and respect, just as I would want to be treated. Give me the strength and wisdom to put aside my own needs and desires and focus on the needs of those around me. Help me to be a good neighbor and a shining example of your love and grace. Amen.
Verse: A second likewise is this, ‘ You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to love their neighbor as themselves.
