Verses: Matthew 5:7-10 (NIV)
Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Father God, I pray that we may extend mercy toward others as You have faithfully extended it to us. May we be worthy of those blessing You have bestowed upon us as we prepare to enter into Your kingdom. In the name of Your Son, Jesus, I pray. Amen.
