Powerful Daily Prayers – Love above Knowledge
1 Corinthians 8:1-13
Dear Father, the one real and only God,
Give me more love and humility than knowledge, for “Knowledge puffs up but love builds up.”
People know lots of things, but they let it go to their heads. Help me, Father, never to imagine that I know everything, because I know that I do not yet know as I ought to know. What I want is to love you as I should, for if I love you, then I am loved and known by you. All the things that men and women pursue, O God, seem to have no real existence when compared to you. There is no God but you, the one God.
The world is full of “gods.” But for us Christians there is just one God, you, from whom all things come and for whom they exist, and there is just one Lord, the Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.
In the name of Jesus and by his authority I ask these things according to his will. Amen.
