God grant us this day a wider view;
So we see others’ faults through the eyes of You ….
Teach us to judge not with hasty tongue;
Neither the adult … nor the young ….
Give us patience and grace to endure;
And a stronger faith so we feel secure ….
Instead of remembering, help us forget;
The irritations that caused us to fret ….
Freely forgiving for some offense;
And finding each day a rich recompense ….
In offering a friendly, helping hand;
And trying in all ways to understand;
That all of us whoever we are;
Are trying to reach an unreachable star ….
For the great and small; the good and the bad;
The young and old; the sad and the glad ….
Are asking today; Is life worth the living?
The answer is found only in, loving and giving …..
For only Love can make a man kind;
And Kindness of Heart brings Peace of Mind ….
By giving love; we can start this day ….
To lift the clouds of hate and fear; and walk in Your way ….
In Jesus’ name ….. AMEN
