A Prayer To Love Others Better

A Prayer To Love Others Better

Today’s Scripture:

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

John 13:34 (NIV)

Opening Prayer:

Heavenly Father, we come before you with hearts open to the desire to love others better. As we reflect on the profound commandment of love found in John 13:34, may your presence inspire us to deepen our love for those around us. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.


The command to love one another is central to the teachings of Jesus. John 13:34 emphasizes the significance of loving others as Christ loved us. Today, let’s explore a prayer to love others better.

  1. Embracing Christ’s Love: Reflect on the depth of love that Christ demonstrated during His earthly ministry. His love was selfless, sacrificial, and unconditional. How can you emulate His love in your interactions with others?
  2. Praying for a Loving Heart: In your prayer, ask God to transform your heart into one that is more loving. Invite His Spirit to guide you in showing love, compassion, and kindness to others, even when faced with challenges.
  3. Specific Intercession: As you pray, be specific in your intercession. Lift up the names of individuals in your life whom you want to love better. Ask God to help you understand their needs, joys, and struggles, so you can love them in meaningful ways.
