The following prayer and reflection is from, "A New You! Letting Go of the Past, Trusting God with our Future."
A New Way Prayer:
Dear Lord, too often people don’t take the time to speak words of kindness. In your great mercy, please bless those who hurt us and bless those who uplift us. Help us to recognize the importance and value of even the smallest acts of charity. Help us also to recognize Your voice in our lives. Help us to listen to our hearts in prayer to the kind words you wish to say to us today and grant us the graces we need to live a life of kindness toward others, and ourselves. Amen.
Bottom line, kind words can only do someone good and everyone needs them. They can make someone's day as much as hurtful words can harm someone's day. With God's help we can be people of profound kindness, always on the lookout for someone in need of it, and as a result find peace for ourselves too.
Have I said anything kind to someone today?
Did I miss an opportunity to say something kind?
Do I know someone in my life right now going through a hard time? Am I willing to provide them a listening ear or a kind word?
Am I selfish? Do I only expect others to be kind to me?
Am I willing to look for occasions to be kind to someone rather than waiting for a situation to arise?
Who do I need to forgive? Who do I need to ask forgiveness from?
