January 10, 2017- Kyrie Elaison- Matthew 9:13

Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have come to call not the righteous but sinners.” Matthew 9:13 (NRSV)

Kyrie Elaison- Christ have mercy.  We know Jesus is merciful toward us. But do we show mercy to others?

Jesus has compassion for the defeated, the downtrodden, the distressed. Are we compassionate?

Take a minute to think about mercy today.  Mercy toward us and mercy from us.

    ” Lord, make successful what I do for others. May they also know your love and peace. ” Amen

    I wrote this prayer based upon Genesis 24:12. Abraham sent his servant to find a wife for Isaac. The servant prayed this prayer before he found Rebecca for Isaac. Say this prayer often or put it on a plaque where you will see it. It may help you to discover how to be merciful.
