When we pray the Act of Love, we tell God of our love and devotion for Him.
Act of Love
Oh my God,
I love Thee above all things,
with my whole heart and soul,
because Thou art all-good and worthy of all love.
I love my neighbor as myself for love of Thee.
I forgive all who have injured me,
and I ask pardon of all whom I have injured.
Jesus tells us in the Bible to love our neighbor as ourselves. Praying the Act of Love helps us to remember that commandment of God. It related also to the Act of Faith Prayer and the Act of Hope Prayer.
