    “Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

    God, whose love is always stronger
    Than our weakness, pride and fear,
    In your world, we pray and wonder
    How to be more faithful here.
    Hate too often grows inside us;
    Fear rules what the nations do.
    So we pray, when wars divide us:
    Give us love, Lord! Make us new!

    Love is patient, kind and caring,
    Never arrogant or rude,
    Never boastful, all things bearing;
    Love rejoices in the truth.
    When we’re caught up in believing
    War will make the terror cease,
    Show us Jesus’ way of living;
    May our strength be in your peace.

    May our faith in you be nourished;
    May your churches hear your call.
    May our lives be filled with courage
    As we speak your love for all.
    Now emboldened by your Spirit
    Who has given us new birth,
    Give us love, that we may share it
    Till your love renews the earth!
