Weekly Prayer: 9/14

God of compassion,

You call me to love and serve the people around me.

To live your kind of generosity, sacrifice, self-denial and compassion.

That is a daunting task.

I don’t always want to do it.

People are sometimes just awful.

And yet, with your help, I can try.

Empower me to give of myself to help others.

Fill me with the compassion and motivation to reach out.

Show me how to serve and love the people I encounter.

Help me care for people who are precious to me, people I don’t know, and people I’d rather ignore.

Use me as you love and transform the world.

Amen.
