The most beautiful prayer for love

The Bible contains one of the most beautiful texts about love:

Song of Songs (1 Corinthians 13)
13.1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And if I could prophesy, and know all mysteries, and all knowledge, and have all faith, that I might remove mountains, and have not love, I should be nothing. 3 And if I should give all my goods to the poor, and should give my body to boast, and should not have love, it would profit me nothing.

4 Love is longsuffering and kind, love is not jealous, love is not wanton, it is not puffed up, 5 it is not unseemly, it does not seek its own, it is not embittered, it does not impute evil, 6 it does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 it endures all things, it believes all things, it hopes all things, it endures all things.

8 Love never ceases, when prophecy will cease, and tongues will cease, and knowledge will cease. 9 For our knowledge is fragmentary, and our prophetic speaking is fragmentary. 10 But when that which is perfect shall come, then shall that which is in part cease.

11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, and thought as a child, and was wise as a child; but when I became a man, I put away that which was childish. 12 Now we see through a mirror in a dark image; but then face to face. Now I know in bits and pieces, but then I will know even as I am known.

13 But now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but love is the greatest of these.
