Lord of Mercy

Praise be to the Lord,
    for he has heard my cry for mercy. Psalm 28:6

O Lord, you have been merciful to us in so many ways; let me begin to count them:

  • you have not punished us as our sins deserve
  • you have redeemed us
  • you have saved us from the fiery pit
  • you give us new opportunities every day
  • you are able to use us in spite of ourselves
  • you provide an example to us of how to be merciful. In fact, you tell us “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy” (Matthew 5:7).
