Keywords: love, prayer, being love

True love moves us toward God through prayer and toward other people through empathy. Without the love of God were are empty and we fill our emptiness with things of this world. Satan will do anything he can to move us from love. Jesus showed that he choose to pray not because he had to pray but that he needed to—wanted to—talk to his Father. You can do that too! Rise up, be strong, and ask God for what you need. Our prayer life demonstrates our dependance on God. Despite how we feel, we need to move toward God through prayer in practical ways such as turning our mind toward Jesus, trusting him, staying away from lazy, and making prayer a faith choice. When we move towards God in prayer, then we will be empowered to do what he asks of us—to give and receive love in the name of Jesus.
