Praying with Paul: 'All-encompassing Compassion'

Wednesday, June 1, 2022

2 Corinthians 6:1-11

Dear Father, blessed bestower of grace,

Let me work together with you to entreat people not to reject or ignore your offer of grace, or to accept it in vain.

Since today is the acceptable time, since today is the day of salvation, may I never-nor anything about me-be an obstacle in the way of someone else's acceptance.

Let my mouth be open to all who will listen. Help my heart be as wide as all humanity.

In the name of Jesus, whose compassion reached to every human being. Amen.
