Mercy and Truth Have Met
May 01, 2023
I pray for a manifestation of the four qualities I find in Psalm 85:10 - Mercy, truth, righteousness, and peace.
"Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other."
I must start with my own circle of influence after I start with myself.
God grant that I might receive, show, and give mercy (Chesed - love, grace, and mercy all wrapped together).
God grant that I might be a man of truth who speaks truth to power, truth to the lowly, and truth to myself.
God grant that I might live a life of righteousness - doing the right thing and heading in the right direction, rightly related to You and to my neighbor.
God grant me peace, that I might be at peace with you through my relationship with Jesus and at peace with my neighbors, friends, and family. Grant that I might be a peacemaker in my community and my life.
God grant these these requests for me and for all who can join me in this prayer in their own way. I pray in the name of my Savior and Master, Jesus.
