2 Corinthians 1:3–4
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and God of all encouragement, who encourages us in our every affliction, so that we may be able to encourage those who are in any affliction with the encouragement with which we ourselves are encouraged by God.
This encouragement has a domino effect. When we experience the effects of our spirits being lifted by God, we are inspired to go and do the same for someone else. God’s nature is compassion. We become instruments for God to use to touch the lives of others who are challenged.
(Pray to God, using these words or your own.)
Father of compassion, God of all encouragement, thank you for reaching out to me when I am most in need. Help me to do the same for others.
