The Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.

Matthew 6:9-13

In Empathy Training, it is essential to recognize the human needs and
emotions which are constantly influencing behavior. In any attempt to have
empathy for other people, we should begin by trying to understand the
needs and emotions which may be affecting them.
We have compiled two lists, shown below, which will provide a starting
point for considering the needs and emotions of others: "Maslow's
Hierarchy Of Needs" and "A Big List Of Human Feelings And Emotions."

Maslow's Hierarchy Of Needs
In 1943 Abraham Maslow's paper, "A Theory of Human Motivation," was
published in Psychological Review, 50, 370-396. This paper first described
his method of understanding the various kinds of human needs, their
relative importance, and their relationship to human motivation. This
description soon became very influential among social scientists, and was
known as "Maslow's Hierarchy Of Needs." You can read the original version
of this paper at => .
Over time, Maslow and others tinkered with the details of the Hierarchy Of
Needs, but for our purposes in Empathy Training, the original five-needs
version will suffice. These are the needs that are most commonly discussed
and used.

The five needs, arranged in descending order of priority, with
Physiological needs ranked first.

1. Physiological needs (Air, water, food, sleep, health) - are to do with
the maintenance of the human body. If cannot get air to breathe, then
little else matters until we do.
2. Safety needs (Shelter, removal from danger) - are about putting a roof
over our heads and keeping us from harm. If we are rich, strong and
powerful, or have good friends, we can make ourselves safe.

3. Belonging needs (Love, affection, being a part of groups) - introduce
our tribal nature. If we are helpful and kind to others they will want to
help us when needed.

4. Esteem needs (Self-esteem and esteem from others) - are for a higher
position within a group. If people respect us, we have greater influence
on them.

5. Self-actualization needs (Achieving individual potential) - are to
'become what we are capable of becoming', which would be our greatest

Prayer For You
Prayer 4 You: To Receive The Gift Of Empathy.
Empathy is "the ability to imagine oneself in another.s place and
understand the other.s feelings, desires, ideas, and actions."

Lord Jesus, now I raise my prayer to You,
That readers of these words may soon receive,
Your wondrous holy gift of Empathy.

And with this gift, I pray they will begin
To see and know and feel the inner thoughts
Of those whom You will send upon their way.

And then I pray that those who have this gift
Will use it well to help those whom You send.
In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

Rededicate Your Life To Jesus Christ - With MP3 Audio Prayer
O Lord, I had You with me, and I strayed.
I turned my back on You and went away.
But now I see the error of my ways,
And now I want to turn again to you.

* * *

I pray that You will come into my life,
As Lord and Saviour, ruling over me.
I know that You are truly Son of God,
I know that You have risen from the dead,
I know that only You can save my soul.
I need Your guidance, and I need Your love;
I want to follow everywhere You lead.
I truly do repent of all my sins;
I feel remorse for evil I have done;
I know that only You can make me clean.
I turn my back on sin and look to You.
I am forgiving all who did me harm,
As You are now forgiving all my sins.
And now as I commit myself to You,
I pray that You commit Yourself to me.
I pray that You will take me as I am,
And draw me, step-by-step, into Your arms.
In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

live people. Then, you can have your real church PLUS your online church,
so you gain the benefits of both. You can find a church for yourself by

I pray the Lord that He will lead your path
Away from the temptations all around.
I pray that when temptation lingers near,
The Lord will lead you not into its reach.
But if temptation grabs you as you pass,
I pray the Lord that you will struggle free.
In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

Blessings to you in Jesus Christ our Lord.
