A Prayer for compassion

A Prayer for compassion:

O Merciful and loving Father of all, look down we pray you on the many millions who are hungry in the world today and are at the mercy of disease. Grant that we, who have lived so comfortably and gently all our lives may have true sympathy with them and do all in our power, as individuals and as a nation, to help them to that abundant life which is your will for all people, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
