And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.

Mercy

Father, remind me to treat others the way I want to be treated. Teach me to show the same forgiveness that you show me. Make it clear to me when mercy should take the place of correction. Let your mercy, peace and love be lavished on me. Remind me not to take advantage of your merciful nature by repeatedly sinning. Teach me to place your mercy in front of the unbeliever so that they may turn to you. Remind me that you are a patient God and that you will demonstrate great loyal love. Thank you for not giving me what I deserve. You are merciful and fair, full of compassion. I hold you up as the most high King who shows his mercy on generation after generation. Turn towards us now, Lord, and show us the forgiveness only available by the blood of the Lamb. The Lord deserves praise, for he has heard my plea and will deliver me. Your will be done. Amen.

James 2

Let thine aims be hope and joy,
And thy worship God's employ;
Give Him thanks in humble zeal,
Learning all His will to feel.

From Christian, Rise And Act Thy Creed by F.A. Rollo Russel 1893
