Prayer for Compassion, for those In Need

Heaven Father,

We praise and lift Your name on high because You are the Lord God Almighty. You cared for us and loved us even before we are formed. You had a plan for us, to give us a future and a hope. (Jer 29: 11) Even when we did not know You, You came to die for us and to save us. You did all this because You love us and we want to love Your people with the same compassion that You have for us. For You are gracious and full of compassion. (Psalm 111: 4)

Father, we come before You and ask, O Lord for You to give us a heart of compassion. The same compassion when Jesus had when He was on earth, we ask that You fill our hearts with.

Father, let us be moved with the compassion for the needy, for the poor, for the fatherless, for the lost and for those that are lost. Let our hearts be tender to those that are in need. Father, we know that as we give onto them, we will collect for us treasures in heaven. (Mark 10: 24) (Luke 14: 13-14)

Lord, You said that when we see those that are hungry and feed them, clothe those that are needy, take strangers in, visit those that are sick or in prison, we are doing it for You. (Matt 25: 24-40)

So Lord, we come before You, with a humble heart that You will lift the fire of compassion in us that wherever we go, we will bring Your compassion to those that are in need. And when people see us, they will know You because we carry Your love to them!

In Jesus name we pray, AMEN!
