What conversations and interactions with others were significant to me today?
What care and compassion did I show?
What was going on in my head during these interactions? What was going on in my heart? 

Was I truly present?
What control do I have over the circumstances of these individuals?
Did I do all that I could in this point in time?
What can I do for them today to show that I care?

A Prayer for Compassion

Merciful God,
Open my heart and mind to be fully present to those I interact with during the coming Holy Week.
Allow me to listen to others without passing judgement or haste to solve what I cannot change.
Give me patience and understanding and grant me grace in my shortcomings.
Be with me in times of fatigue and lift me up with the strength to carry out your compassionate love to all those I speak with each day of Holy Week. 

Based on the words of Ashley Henkes

How are YOU planning to make this coming Holy Week special in YOUR life?

LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS FAIR, BUT GOD IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL!
