Prayer of Love

[158] Highest L,

You are infinitely holy.
Your justice be praised.
Give me Your love
as I approve You.

Adhere to Your word
as I do too.
Unban me fairly betimes.
My thankfulness lasts eternally.

Yours (name)

[326] Comment: The prayer has four parts (the salutation, two strophes and the complimentary close). Each strophe has four lines with four words each. Words that are derived from I and You occur ever five times. The "Yours" at the end keeps the superiority of L, compared to humans, like the mention of the name of L at the beginning and of the praying at the end.

[327] The infinity, as sign of L, is answered by humans in the only infinity that is given to them by L - the time. The highest virtue of L (the justice) is underlined by twice mentioning like the highest virtue of humans (the love).

[328] The holiness of L, as non-understood virtue of humans, stands at the beginning like the marking of L as highest nature. The love of L is not understood contrary to L's justice (in the extent). Therefore, it is requested. There is the word of L, but L does not have to keep it, because ze stands above zis word.

[329] Keeping the word is an interrelation between L and humans, like the gift of love. As man behaves (karma), so ze is measured. The praying ties zis desire down to the own behaviour and does not demand from L more than ze is prepared to give. Thus, lowliness and piety are described.

[475] The initiative proceeds from the praying. It is not like that that humans do not have to do anything and L chums up in each case. The further divine characteristics beside infinite, (good, wise, beautiful, extraordinary), are subject of a further prayer. Here the divine activity (not characteristic!) of love is in the centre.

[330] The suffering of man is circumscribed by the word "unban". The circumscriptions have the sense that divine properties are in the foreground. The finiteness of man is circumscribed likewise. The time, as elementary substance, is likewise mentioned twice, like justice, word, love and infinity.

[331] To the properties of L is opposed the human thankfulness, which exists not only in the word, but also in the doings. L knows thankfulness also, therefore it can likewise be considered as divine property. The polyphony at the end is intended: The many (humans) confront the only L.
