Prayer to Be Compassionate
L. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other,
R. Just as in Christ God has forgiven you.(Ephes. 4:32)
Lord, we know only too well how we would like others to treat us. We want them to respect us; to show us kindness; to forgive our faults and shortcomings.
We want them to like us and love us. We want them to be our friends and never our enemies.
We want them to bring joy and happiness into our lives.
We expect much from others. Should we not in turn expect the same from ourselves? Help us be the ones that go out of our way to show love and mercy to those who may have offended us.
Remind us often to give of ourselves readily and generously when others ask for our help.
Help us be the shoulder that another may lean on in a time of crisis. Give us insight into the needs of others even before they ask anything of us so that we can respond positively and quickly to them.
Help us be more like You who have been so compassionate and merciful to us. We ask this in Your name. Amen.
Lord Jesus Christ
you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father, and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.
Show us your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money;
the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created things;
made Peter weep after his betrayal,
and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.
Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman:
“If you knew the gift of God!”
You are the visible face of the invisible Father,
of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy:
let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and glorified.
You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in weakness
in order that they may feel compassion for those in ignorance and error:
let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.
Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing, so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord, and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor, proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed,
and restore sight to the blind.
We ask this of you, Lord Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, Mother of
Mercy; you who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and
Have you ever found yourself in a situation in which you wished people would show you a little compassion? When we get hurt, it's one thing to have someone say, "I feel sorry for you." and then proceed to tell you about their bad experiences.
It's quite another thing when that same person is willing to put him or herself in your shoes and try to feel your pain and frustrations.
Can we say the same about ourselves and how we show compassion to others? Are we truly there for them or are we focused on our needs and pains and watching the clock because we have something else to do?
Compassion takes practice. We have to get into the habit of opening ourselves to the needs of others and then doing something to help them.
There's a gospel passages that always makes me think hard. "What good is it to tell your brother, be happy and well-fed, but do nothing to help him in his time of need." Let us ask God to help us show more compassion to others.
