Prayer to Help Me Learn How To Give Love To Others

by Tim Klinger (Franklin,PA)

I don’t know why, but I can’t seem to be able to be close to anyone. My girlfriend Elaine loves me deeply, but I find it so hard to love her or anyone in a way that would give God Honor & Glory. I was bullied in my youth and that may have a lot to do with it.

I seem to keep others at a distance as I don’t want to get hurt again. Please pray that God will help me overcome this depressing problem. I don’t know what it’s really like to love someone.

    Love according to the bible

    The bible said in the book of 1Corinthians13;4

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” –

    God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:12-19) No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. {13} By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. {14} And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.

    {15} Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. {16} And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. {17} Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. {18} There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

    {19} We love Him because He first loved us. (Mark 12:30) ‘And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.
