60 Days of Prayer - Serve like You Serve

 “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Colossians 3:12 

God we thank you for your kindness that led us to repentance. May we show each other, our communities and leaders, your heart of mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Give us and our leaders the humility to serve each other’s needs, kindness to turn away anger, gentleness to drive out fear, and mercy to make a place of safety for all. We ask for your heart for this province and all who call it home. We pray that compassion would lay the foundation for decisions made and drive the hearts and minds that make them. Amen.
