Publisher's Description

Lord, have mercy.

A raw plea for intervention. The most common prayer in the Bible. And—most remarkably—a request that God has never failed to grant . . . often in surprising ways that have radically transformed individual lives and the trajectory of history itself.

In The Mercy Prayer, Robert Gelinas explores the richness of God’s unfailing compassion by blending biblical insights with penetrating personal encounters and keen insight into familiar stories. The result is a practical guide for receiving the mercy we all desperately need and letting it flow from us into the lives of others. 

The Mercy Prayer reveals:

  • How God’s abundant compassion is at the core of His character and was central to the earthly mission of Jesus
  • The truth that simply praying the Mercy prayer and anticipating mercy’s arrival can soothe a wounded soul and change a life from the inside out
  • Practical ways to carry God’s mercy into the muck and mire of a hurting world, offering comfort and hope in the name of Christ
  • How you can make the most frequent prayer in the Bible your most prayed prayer, too, by learning to pray with every breath you take and every beat of your heart
The Mercy Prayer invites each of us to become a student of heavenly compassion and clemency, to immerse ourselves in it, to embrace the responsibility of seeing all life in view of God’s mercy—and to watch as this simple-yet-profound cry reshapes us and our world. Everybody needs mercy.

    I think our culture in general forgets that God desires to give mercy to His children. That He desires to give good gifts to them, we're surrounded by such loud (and wrong) voices out there that scream about God's hate, its nice to be reminded of His love.

    Gelinas did a great job of conveying the message of mercy in his book, I love that while he was abundantly clear about God desiring to give out mercy, that He also included the expectations that God has for His children as well! I think there's too many times where people only get half that message, and what a disservice it is to them, not to know how to live fully in the way that God intended!

    To me the centeral theme of the book was found in Psalm 103:8 "The Lord is compassionate, and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in love". I also love that the author included the example of practical ways for us to show God's mercy to the world, many authors/preachers love to say we need to show mercy, but don't usually adequately explain how to do that. So I really appreciate Gelinas willingness to really teach his readers not only that they need to show mercy, but how to do so too!

    I believe this is one of those life changing books, that will leave you seeking more of God and a willingness to do the work of God in turn.

    I highly recommend this book!
