A Prayer for Mercy - St. Faustina, 1937


Help me, O Lord, that my eyes may be merciful,

that I may never suspect or judge from appearances,

but look for what is beautiful in my neighbor's soul.

Help me, O Lord, that my ears may be merciful,

so that I may give heed to my neighbor's needs.

Help me, O Lord, that my tongue may be merciful,

so that I should never speak negatively of my neighbor.

Help me, O Lord, that my hands may be merciful

and filled with good deeds,

so that I may do only good to my neighbor.

Help me, O Lord, that my feet may be merciful,

so that I may hurry to assist my neighbor.

Help me, O Lord, that my heart may be merciful,

so that i myself may feel all the sufferings of my neighbor.

May your mercy, O Lord, rest upon me.
