#40WordPrayer on MERCY
O Lord, I have heard of your renown,
and I stand in awe, O Lord, of your work.
In our own time revive it; in our own time make it known;
in wrath may you remember mercy.
— Habakkuk 3:2
In times of deep conflict and passionate disagreement,
God, show me the way, your way.
When I must be firm, God, let me be just.
When I must be strong, God, let me be compassionate.
When I must stand in judgment, God, let me be merciful.
Choosing revenge and retribution is to walk a path paved by insecurity and fear, whereas to choose mercy is choosing a road paved with confidence and compassion. In our individual and collective lives, may we choose a path of mercy.
