A great prayer that most people don’t think about praying is asking God to help us be more compassionate and kind. Ephesians 4:32 says, “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” When we are kind we are more like Christ. In addition, kindness encourages and strengthens those around us. Kindness shows you care and helps others feel valued.


Ask God to help you relate to others with more kindness than you have in the past. In fact, ask Him to help you see opportunities to show kindness to those around you and especially those who need it most. It is one additional way God can use us to impact the lives of others for good.
