Prayer for Selfless Love

Thank You for choosing me,

for loving me.

Your love makes all the difference.

 

The distance between dusk and dawn,

the reach from star to star—

that’s how powerful Your love is.

The gift of life from death,

the offer of paradise over damnation—

that’s how selfless it is.

 

Oh, Father,

You held nothing back for me,

not even Your Son,

giving Him away as the Bridegroom of Dust,

a Redeemer through His own blood.

 

Cleanse me of my selfishness,

my focus on my own needs and desires.

I surrender my life to You once again,

wrapping myself in Your love,

that I may have something beautiful and glorious

to pour over others,

to reflect Your giving and merciful heart

in my own.

 

Amen.
