Touch my mind with Your mercy that I may think mercifully. And not let my pride, anger, selfishness and self-will stop me from thinking compassionately.
Touch my heart with Your mercy that I may love unconditionally and feel for others compassionately. And not let my animosity, ill-will and lack of forgiveness affect my relationships.
Touch my eyes with Your mercy that I may see your mighty works and praise You. That I may look only at the goodness in others and not have eyes for their weaknesses.
Touch my ears with Your mercy that I may listen to Your Holy Word and live it. That I may listen to the cares of others and find ways to help them. Let me not have ears for slander and gossip and endless complaints against others.
Touch my lips with Your mercy that I may sing Your praises now and always. That I may speak the truth with no fear of consequences. That I may speak kind and encouraging words to everyone; not hurtful and accusing words.
Touch my hands with Your mercy that I may use them to serve others and write comforting and consoling words to those in distress.
Touch my feet with Your mercy that I may go swiftly to those in trouble, and not look for excuses that could stop me from being of service.
Divine Mercy, make me an instrument of Your mercy.
