Prayer based on Matthew 25:40. Themes: Compassion, Service, Judgment

Dear Lord,
We pray that you help us to see the needs of those around us, especially the least of our brothers and sisters. May we be moved with compassion to serve and love them as we would serve and love you. May our actions reflect your love and grace, and may we be a light in this world. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you in this way. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Verse: “The King will answer them, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
Matthew 25:40

This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to show kindness and help to those in need, as it is seen as doing it to Jesus himself.
