When it comes to praying the Scriptures, praying for love is an excellent place to start.

I’m at Satisfaction Through Christ today, sharing a chapter of my latest book, Praying for Fruit: Praying the Scriptures for the Fruit of the Spirit.

Here’s a sneak peek:

Considering the importance of love throughout the Scriptures, it comes as no surprise that love is the first characteristic of Holy Spirit fruit. And yet from my own experience and from the testimony of others, praying for love isn’t among our most common requests.

It occurs to me that we will want to pray for love only when we realize how little genuine love exists in our hearts. This happens when we immerse ourselves in God’s Word, absorbing the height and depth and breadth of God’s love for us as demonstrated through Christ, and realizing how pale our own love is by comparison.

Will you join me in lifting to the Lord these prayers for love?
