Little Prayer I found

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Heavenly Father, Help us remember that the jerk who cut us off in
traffic last night, is a single mother who worked nine hours that day & is
rushing home to cook dinner, help with homework, do the laundry & spend a few precious moments with her children.

Help us to remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested young man
who can't make change correctly, is a worried 19-year-old college
student, balancing his apprehension over final exams with his fear of not
getting his student loans for next semester.

Remind us, Lord, that the scary looking bum, begging for money in the
same spot every day (who really ought to get a job!) is a slave to
addictions that we can only imagine in our worst nightmares.

Help us to remember that the old couple walking annoyingly slow through
the store aisles & blocking our shopping progress, are savoring this moment, knowing that, based on the biopsy report she got back last
week, this will be the last year that they go shopping together.

Heavenly Father, remind us each day that, of all the gifts you give us,
the greatest gift is love. It is not enough to share that love with
those we hold dear.

Open our hearts not to just those who are close to us, but
to all humanity. Let us be slow to judge and quick to forgive, show
patience, empathy and love.
