Prayer of Mercy and Compassion

Oh gracious God, enlighten my mind and heart with truth, love, mercy, gratitude and compassion. Give me the courage to follow you daily in faith, love and hope. In my busy day help me
to think of you now and then.

Make me aware of the needs of the people around me. Help me to be grateful for what I have and help those with so much less. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
