Today, as we celebrate love in all it’s forms, I encourage you to “pray love.” What do I mean by this?

First, pray that God’s love may cover all those whom you hold dear, including yourself. Ask that His goodness and comfort may permeate your lives, inside and out.

Next, pray for those whom you do not know, but who are suffering from lack of love, those whose lives are covered in darkness, despair, fear, pain, and loneliness. Spend extra time imagining your prayer moving and resting over these souls, breaking through the darkness and delivering light.

Third, rest. Listen to God’s response to your prayers for and of love. Listen for the Holy Spirit’s wisdom. Listen in simple wonder at the power – and the inspiration – of Our Lord’s mercy.

Happy Valentine’s Day! May you feel – and share – love!
