Daily Prayer for February 5th, 2020      

Good morning, God‚ÄĒthank you! ūüôā

Help me to love everyone no matter what, pray for the underhanded and the good, and for those who persecute me. Let me not take revenge, as it is yours to avenge, not my right to judge. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Mark 12:29-31 English Standard Version (ESV)

29¬†Jesus answered,¬†‚ÄúThe most important is,¬†‚ÄėHear, O Israel: The Lord our God,¬†the Lord is one.¬†30¬†And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.‚Äô¬†31¬†The second is this:¬†‚ÄėYou shall love your neighbor as yourself.‚Äô There is no other commandment¬†greater than these.‚ÄĚ

John 13:34-35 English Standard Version (ESV)

34¬†A new commandment¬†I give to you,¬†that you love one another:¬†just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.¬†35¬†By this, all people will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another.‚ÄĚ

Matthew 5:43-48 English Standard Version (ESV)

Love Your Enemies

43¬†‚ÄúYou have heard that it was said,¬†‚ÄėYou shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.‚Äô¬†44¬†But I say to you,¬†Love your enemies and¬†pray for those who persecute you,¬†45¬†so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46¬†For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?¬†47¬†And if you greet only your brothers,¬†what more are you doing than others? Do not even¬†the Gentiles do the same?¬†48¬†You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Proverbs 10:12 English Standard Version (ESV)

12 Hatred stirs up strife,
but love covers all offenses.
