Lord, God, Creator of all,
you have loved us into being:
Grace us with love of you.
You command us to love you with our whole heart, soul,
Give us the courage to live this command.
You call us to love ourselves:
Move us to recognize the good in ourselves.
You instruct us to love our neighbor.
Help us to see our neighbor
… in those we love
… in those we know
… in those who annoy us
… in those whom we dislike
… in those who are different from us
… in those of whom we are afraid.
