Day 8- 31 Days of Praying for Children

Mercy is defined as compassion or forgiveness show towards someone, when it is within one's power to punish or harm.  It is so easy to dismiss the mercy we receive.  I am reminded of a funny song from my childhood,  "Oh Lord it's hard to be humble, when your perfect in every way...." (sung in the best southern drawl)  How often do we consider ourselves "perfect"?  Thankfully the Lord grants us new mercies each day. 
Day 8:  August 26- May this child always be merciful, just as their Father is merciful.  Luke 6:36
Dear Father, 
We thank you for your undeserving mercy.  Please help my child see the love and compassion they receive daily, and help them to be merciful to others.  -Amen
