Merciful Lord, we give you all the praises for allowing us to be here another day. I pray that individually we will be considerate as well as sympathetic every day. Equally important, I pray that everyone ascertain a caring spirit. In other words, being compassionate. “Finally, all of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, a tender heart, and a humble mind” (1 Peter 3:8). Now I thank you, Lord, in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
