15+ Inspiring Prayers for Love, along with Bible Verses
Table of Contents
There is no force more powerful than love. Because God loved us so much, He sent His one and only Son, Jesus, to be a sacrifice at the cross so we can be forgiven of our sins and have eternal life with Him.
Here are a few verses (4-8a) from 1 Corinthians Chapter 13 of the Bible, often called “The Love Chapter.”
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, it is not selfish, and it cannot be made angry easily.
Love does not remember wrongs done against it. Love is never happy when others do wrong, but it is always happy with the truth.
Love never gives up on people. It never stops trusting, never loses hope, and never quits. Love will never end.
Below you will find inspiring prayers for love for use during your quiet time with God. I pray that they are a blessing to you!
