Prayers for the Church (2/7)
A prayer for compassion (Dan Reiland)
Jesus, we thank you for the compassion that you so lavishly and continually pour out upon us
Your Word makes it clear that you care deeply for those who are like sheep without a shepherd. Your love is great for those in physical and financial need, for those who suffer, for the fatherless, for those who need healing, and so many more. We pray, Jesus, that your spirit would prompt us to live out that same kind of compassion. May we do for one what we’d like to do for many. We pray that we would continue to grow as a compassionate, caring and loving church, starting with each of us as leaders.
