A Prayer for Child’s Lack of Compassion
The Bible tells us that being compassionate is important. Yet we all know that there are times when compassion isn't at the forefront of our priorities. However, we should never walk away from our compassion. It's part of what allows us to connect to others.
Here is a prayer that asks God to make us more compassionate in our daily lives. Pray this prayer for more compassion, for a softer heart, and for greater kindness in reaching out to those less fortunate, suffering, or in need.
Heavenly Father, I see a lack of compassion for other people in my own child.
I am concerned that their heart is not moved by others’ needs because, by Your grace, they have never wanted for anything.
I believe prayers are crucial for our world, so I am placing my child into Your hands and asking for Your help.
Please soften their heart toward others and give them eyes to see the hurting as You see them. Amen.
