Walk in love.
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. Above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. Love covereth all sins.
When ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. Love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again. Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth. Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrarwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Be ye kind one to another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

Let your requests be made known unto God.
Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt. There was given to me a thorn in the flesh. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities.
I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble. Hannah ... was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore. And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and ... wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life. The LORD remembered her.
We know not what we should pray for as we ought. He shall choose our inheritance for us.
