God, have mercy on me, a sinner. Have mercy on me when my many doings take time away from being. Have mercy on me when my thoughts of others become critical because they don’t look like me, or think like me, or do the things I do. Thank you that others don’t look like me, or think like me, or do the things I do. God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Have mercy on me when my tongue is sharp, when my heart is unloving toward another. Have mercy on me when I place my wants and desires above another, when I am uncaring or dismissive of another’s wants or desires. God, have mercy on me, a sinner, when my heart is apathetic toward the plight of another, just because I don’t understand it, or when I become judge and jury of another’s thoughts or ways. Have mercy on me for plowing into my day without first spending time with You, my Peace, my Wisdom, my Deliverer, the lover of my soul, the very One who shows me how to love. God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

God, have mercy on me, a sinner. – Luke 18:13

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love;according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. – Psalm 51:1.
