Our passage for reading is in Mark 12:28-31 about the two greatest commandments. It says:
"As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commands and remain in his love."
Let us pray:
Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that we have lived life apart from You. We have made decisions according to our own understanding, will, timing and ways, and have failed to regard your commands as holy. Forgive us Father we pray in the name of Jesus and we accept Jesus' lordship over our lives. We submit ourselves to Him as living sacrifices and we ask for your help in loving others just the way you see them and believe in them. This we fervently pray in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
