A Prayer About God's Compassion Beyond Reason. Dear Heavenly Father, There have been many times in our lives when we needed the healing touch of compassion from others. However, no matter how much we needed the healing touch of compassion from others, there were many, many times when their compassion did not come. You know us, Lord. We are often beaten up by life and few people know or care to know. We are often beaten up by life and few people respond or care to respond. As much as we hurt, you would think our human reason would be used to walk into the lives of others and to show them someone cares. However, too often our human reason is used for our own selfish purposes rather than expressing compassion for others. In your love and in your grace, We know our need for compassion does not go unnoticed by you. We know you love us and you pour your compassion over us every hour. We know the person who stands next to us and understands our every hurt is you, Our Precious Savior, Christ Jesus. Although we cannot see you, We know you are with us and within us. Although we cannot see you, We know you care about us. Our human reason would tell us, indeed our human reason does tell us, if we cannot see you then you must be far off. But our human reason is often wrong and our human reason is wrong about your being far off. Our human reason might tell us you do not know us or know we exist, but our human reason is wrong because we know within our hearts you pour your compassion and understanding over us every second. Thank you, Precious Lord, for your compassion beyond reason. All these things we humbly pray in the name of Jesus Christ and our Ever-present Holy Spirit upon whom we can rely. Amen and Amen.
