Prayer for 1 John 2:11

“But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness, walks in the darkness, and doesn't know where he's going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.”

Heavenly Father, what a sombre warning, that we must never become embroiled in hatred toward a brother or sister in Christ. Forgive me for the times when others have irritated me or caused me to sin against them in my heart. Develop in me the love of Christ, towards my Christian brethren, and help me to keep the eyes of my heart on Jesus. Purify my heart, I pray, and help me to align my thoughts to Your thoughts, every moment of the day. Develop in me a supernatural love for my fellow believers, which reflects the unchangeable love that the Lord Jesus has for me, and for all that are His. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
