A Valentine’s Day Prayer
Teach us a big-hearted love,
That embraces the pushed aside and powerless,
The exploited and those in need.
A love that dares to speak truth to power,
For their sake.
Help us to enlarge the tents of our hearts,
To share all that we are and have,
To give freely what we have freely received.
For all is your gracious gift,
Given for the good of all of us.
Grant us the openness
To learn love from each person
in whom you come to meet us.
