St. Valentine’s Day Prayer

St. Valentine’s Day brings out the weird and wonderful, but in the theme of the “patron Saint of love,” may we pray in such a way as to honour love, and honour the Author of Love.  Despite the lonely ache of lovelessness, the pain of unrequited love, we seem to be made to love and be loved in return.  This prayer speaks to “that special person out there for me” – and that person may be the person of Jesus who is all, fills all, and is the source of all love.  Are you ready for love?

I Am Ready for Love

Dear God, I am ready to have a relationship with a wonderful person, who truly gets me, loves me, adores me, and is ready to build a life with me. I know in my heart there is a special person out there for me.

My name is written across her heart. Please put me on the right track toward true love.

and lead me to a place of committed love. I am willing to work on myself and To make myself ready for love.

Please grant me the power to look at love through spiritual eyes, And to remain sincere about finding the relationship I have longed for.

About R.H. (Rusty) Foerger

As I enter the third third of life, I am becoming aware of the role of elders today “to enlarge spiritual vision, being devoted to prayer, living in the face of death, as a living curriculum of the Christian life” (Dr. James M. Houston). I am a life long and life wide learner who seeks to: *decipher the enigma of our worth *rescue from the agony of prayerlessness *integrate spiritual friendship.
