Over the last couple of days we prayed the Act of Faith and the Act of Hope. Today we will pray the Act of Love.
The Act of Love (Charity) is a powerful and challenging prayer. In it we declare our love for God above all else and our willingness to forgive all.
“O my God, I love you above all things, with my whole heart and soul, because you are all-good and worthy of all love. I love my neighbor as myself for the love of you. I forgive all who have injured me and ask pardon of all whom I have injured. Amen.”
I admit that I do not love God above all things. I want to, but oh, I always mange to put myself first. What I want, what I need, what I desire. But, when I pray this prayer, I aspire to love God above all things!
