Observe a young couple in love. They spend day after day in each other's presence without growing weary of each other. Therefore, ask Jesus to give you a new heart (Ez 36:26) and open it to receive the love He is pouring out through the Holy Spirit (Rm 5:5). Then your prayer will grow in love instead of growing weary.
Prayer: Father, may I pray not because I want something from You, but always because I want You.
Promise: "All Scripture is inspired of God and is useful for teaching — for reproof, correction, and training in holiness." —2 Tm 3:16
Praise: Praise Jesus, Whose Sacred Heart has taught us how to love. Alleluia!
