When You Pray For Mercy. I.
“Pardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of this people according to unto the greatness of thy mercy, and as thou hast forgiven these people, from Egypt even until now.”
“And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers.”
In this first part, we will be looking at what mercy is all about. Let us not forget that, as Christians, we were taught and nourished with the word of God, for our elevation and spiritual growth. Nevertheless, Mercy or to be merciful is one of the Christian virtue a child of God Must display at all times.
Meanwhile, Mercy is that benevolence, mildness or tenderness of heart that disposes a person to overlook injuries or to treat an offender better than he deserves. And the scriptures say, *”Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.”* (Matthew 5:7) When you show mercy, you will receive mercy in return.
Furthermore, Mercy is a distinguishing attribute of the Most High God, and as Gods children, to be merciful is innate. “The Lord is long-suffering and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty…” (Numbers 14:18)
In conclusion, when we pray for mercy, we are asking for compassion, for reconsideration and restoration. As you ask God for mercy today, may He be merciful unto you in Jesus name. Amen. Shalom!
God bless you.
Till He returns or calls you home, do remain in the power of Jesus love.
*Jesus is coming very soon.*
Through the Lord’s mercy, I receive mercy, compassion and restoration.
Almighty and Merciful Father, in Your mercy, let mercy always prevail over every judgement set against me in Jesus name. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
