A Prayer for Wednesday, October 2, 2013

Self-Love (Part 4)

O God,

Your Son Jesus taught us to love our neighbor as ourselves. But how do we love ourselves?

Loving someone requires getting to know that person; how well do we know ourselves?

Help us to look not only at our actions but to also to look into our hearts honestly and boldly so that we will better understand what inspires us to live like we live and what motivates us to do what we do.

As we grow in knowing ourselves, help us to become better able to invest our lives in the lives of others so that we can better know them, so that we can better discern what drives them and as a result better understand them.

Help us to grow in our willingness and ability to know ourselves and to know others so that we can better love ourselves and love others.
