Praying for mercy

We often equate mercy with clemency and compassion, but God’s mercy offers much more. His mercy offers us forgiveness, redemption, and peace .  That’s true for us individually and also for God's family.  We’re all in this together! So let’s pray to receive God’s mercy over us and our country. Let's do all we can to be at peace with God, each other, and ourselves. Deuteronomy 21:8-9 – a prayer of Moses from the  King James Version  of the Bible Be merciful, O Lord, unto thy people Israel, whom thou hast redeemed, and lay not innocent blood unto thy people of Israel's charge. And the blood shall be forgiven them. So shalt thou put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you, when thou shalt do that which is right in the sight of the Lord.

Psalm 67 for today

God, be merciful to us and bless us. Let Your face shine upon us, so Your ways may be known on the earth and Your saving strength among all nations. Let the people praise You, O God. Let all the peoples praise You. O, let the nations be glad and sing for joy for You shall judge us rightly and govern the nations of the earth. Let the people praise You, O God. Let all the peoples praise You. Then the earth will yield abundance, and You, God, our God, shall bless us. Yes, God shall bless us, and all the ends of the earth will hold You in awe. prayer-a-phrase by Mary Harwell Sayler …
