Bible Verse Of The Month - February  

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love…  Psalm 51:1

The season of Lent begins this month, with Ash Wednesday on 17th February. It’s a time when Psalm 51 - King David’s prayer for God’s forgiveness - is often prayed by Christians. Mercy is undeserved: it depends, not on the worthiness of the recipient, but on the gracious kindness of the giver.

The prayer for God to have mercy is repeated many times in different situations throughout the Bible - sometimes by one individual, like David, at other times by people for their community (eg Matthew 20: 30).

Perhaps our motivational phrase this month might be - as Jesus instructed - that we should “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful” (Luke 6:36). 

And our daily prayer might be - for ourselves, our nation and our world:   “Lord, have mercy on us…”

The Revd Mary Barr.
