Prayer for 1 John 2:7

“Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command, but an old command that you have had from the beginning. The old command is the message you have heard.”

Praying through 1 John 2:7

Heavenly Father, thank You for this new commandment which Jesus gave to His disciples, and has become such a well-loved old instruction which has been passed down through generations of believers to me. I desire to love others as Christ loved me, and to live my life as He lived, in ongoing and unbreakable fellowship with You. Thank You for the length, and breadth, and depth, and height, of His supernatural and never-ending, never-failing, love for me. Keep me low at the Cross and broken before You. May I quickly restore any fractured fellowship with You, through the immediate confession of my sin, and give me the grace to love others as Christ loved me, and gave Himself for me. This I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.
