Day 7 of Praying the Impossible: Pray that we would Love

1 Corinthians 13:2-3  If I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Pray that we would be patient and kind.  That we would not envy or boast.  That we would not be arrogant or rude.  Pray that we would not insist on our own way or be irritable or resentful.  Pray that we would not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoice with the truth.  Pray that we would bear all things, believe all things, hope all things, endure all things.
