Lord, I pray for a compassionate heart and a gentle disposition.
This world encourages coarse speech, indulging in pride, and aggressive competitiveness for the self. Lord, may I instead seek strength in humility. May I grow endurance in meekness.
Holy Spirit forge this mind in patience. May I always be slow to anger, never boastful, and continuously cautious of my demeanor.
I pray for a gentle heart. A heart focused on Your Will. A heart eager to serve with selflessness and love.
