‘Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.’ (Romans 13:8)

Father, thank you for making us realise, through your word, that love is the greatest commandment and therefore we cannot do without it. As we read in Galatians 5:14, ‘For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbour as yourself.”’

Thank you that, also through you, we have realised that we should not owe our neighbours anything but love. Father, we want to ask that you release your grace upon our lives as we know that trying to love one’s neighbours is not always the easiest thing to do, but a heart filled with love for God naturally overflows. Help us to maintain and increase our love for you and our neighbours.

These I pray through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen!
