Our Morning Offering – 14 February
Keep me, O God, from pettiness;
let me be large in thought,
Let me be done with fault-finding and self-seeking.
May I put away all pretense
and meet everyone face to face
without self-pity and without prejudice.
May I never be hasty in judgment and always generous.
Let me take time for all things.
Make me grow calm, serene and gentle.
Teach me to put into action my better impulses,
straightforward and unafraid.
Grant that I may realise it is the little things of life
that create differences
and that in the big things of life we are one.
And, O Lord God, let me not forget to be kind!
Through kindness itself, Your Son, Jesus Christ, amen.
