As the saying goes, a little kindness really does go a long way. Here are 5 powerful prayers for kindness– no matter what situation we are faced with!
Prayer to Be God’s Instrument of Kindness
Lord of unfailing love, my life is a living testimony to Your kindness and forgiveness. You redeemed me from an eternity separated from You when I did not deserve it. How then can I reflect unkindness toward anyone? Lord, do not let it be so in my life. Kindness is the instrument of my Holy God, and I want to become a skilled user. Grant me knowledge, discernment, and precision to use kindness to cut out hatred, racism, indifference, inequality, and all the other afflictions that run rampant in the human race. Use me, Lord, to lead out in Your kindness and to be Your catalyst for change. Amen.
Prayer for a Compassionate and Kind Heart
Father of compassion, You have given guidance in the Bible to Your children on how we should behave. I desire to be a child that is pleasing to You Holy Spirit and to exhibit kindness and forgiveness at all times. I want to live a life always marked with kindness and compassion, not just when it is easy. Please examine my heart and show me areas marred with pride and hatefulness. Because I am flesh still on this side of Heaven, I know I have areas that need to be cleansed by Your holy touch. I pray for that cleansing presence in my life, one that will change me into a kind and compassionate child. Amen.
Prayer to Be Kind to Mean People
Jesus, You have been kind to me by providing a way for me to go to Heaven and giving me a family who loves me. Will You please help me be kind to people around me? Help me be kind even to those who are mean to me and pick on me. I want to show other people the kindness You showed me. I want them to see You through me. Amen.
