Mercy is showing kindness to those who are weak, sinful, and needy, because Christ loved me first when I was his enemy.

Prayer to be merciful:

Father, thank you for being merciful to me all the time, when I never deserve it.  I want to be merciful too, but I often care more about fairness than mercy. Help me to be quick to forgive or overlook an offense. Help me to have compassion for those in need. In Jesus name, Amen.
