A Prayer for the Beautiful Qualities of Kindness and Gentleness
Tender Jesus, so meek, so mild, teach us to be like You in all our ways. Teach us kindness, gentleness, generosity, and to be giving, forgiving, loving and caring. Teach us to follow in Your humble footsteps. Guide us to the place You want us to be, take control. Mold and shape us into the brilliant beings we were always destined to become.
Colossians 3:12 Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
Saviour, lead us to the place in our souls where there is tranquility, peace and calmness. Where the waters are so still we can walk on them with You holding our hands and leading the way. Allow our gentle spirits of love, kindness and gentleness to infiltrate and infect the land. Let it spread like a wildfire across the nation.
Ephesians 4:32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
Let our lights shine so brightly that people will be drawn to us wanting to know You and, as the seek You, they will surely find You. Those who hunger will be filled with satisfaction, for You Lord are our portion and only You can satisfy. Quiet our souls when anger, hatred, sadness or worry fills our minds, Oh peaceful Saviour.
Luke 6:35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
We shall cling to You when oceans rise and thunders roar, for You are our rock and strong tower, our comforter in our most vulnerable times. Jesus, intercede within our hearts so that we would be kind and gentle to the people that surround us, in Your precious Name we pray, Amen!
Romans 12:9-13 Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.
