Compassion

Compassion

God, help me to see you in this situation

Help me to know you’re there.

To rest upon You completely

In an attitude of prayer.

To speak when the Spirit prompts

With holiness and truth.

To listen with a heart of care

May my grace exude.

Fill me with your Spirit’s power

As you nudge me to speak.

That in this holy hour

I would boldly be.

The sharpness of an arrow

That strikes the heart of lies.

Hitting its mark of anything

Against the Word of Christ.

Encouragement to the wounds

Compassion filled with grace.

A vessel emptied of myself

For Jesus took my place.
