God’s love is always there for you. Still, you might not feel it or sense the presence of his love. But if you pray for God’s love (or to be more aware of it), it becomes more apparent in your life. Plus, it’s the best cure for all the things you want to improve about yourself.
Praying for God’s love might not be the most common type of prayer, but it should be. When you pray for his love, things take on a whole new perspective. Difficulty shrinks and peace in your heart grows.
One of the greatest things about God’s love is that it removes fear. When you know for sure that you are loved and forgiven, you feel secure. Jesus promises us eternal life. This is the promise of love. Trust and build your relationship with God on that promise. Then go forth and share the love overflowing from your heart.
Audio message and prayer from Vincent:

Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God; for God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.
1 John 4:7-9
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and he who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because he first loved us.
1 John 4:18-19
PRAYER FOR MORE OF GOD’S LOVE
O loving Lord,
I’m far from perfect. Many parts of my character could be more pure, and things aren’t always how I want them to be.
One thing I know for sure, one thing I trust in, and count on with all my heart, is the power of God’s love.
So fill me, O Lord, with your grace and loving Spirit.
The best answer to all my problems and imperfections is more of you.
Pour yourself over me, O Lord. Cleanse and restore me. I ask for more of Christ in me to cast out the darkness, fear, hurt and shame.
Your love for me is infinite and all powerful.
I am a child of God.
My lips sings praises to your glory. In Christ, my soul soars free.
In Jesus name,
