Impress on us the need to cultivate a humble boldness before Your throne of grace, and steadfast meekness with men.
One of the things for which You seem to have created a need in us is encouragement. Show us today someone(s) who need to hear some encouraging words from Your heart. Make us conduits of encouragement.
Teach us to respond immediately to what we hear from You.
If it is the merciful who will receive mercy, show us how to grow in mercy toward those who treat us harshly, contemptuously, or even indifferently, and actually to be grateful for the opportunity to do so.
