O God:

 

 


Give me strength to live
another day;

Let me not lose faith in other
people;

Keep me sweet and sound of
heart, in spite of ingratitude,
treachery, or meanness;

Preserve me from minding little

stings or giving them;

Help me to keep my heart
clean, and to live so honestly and
fearlessly that no outward failure
can dishearten me or take away
the joy of conscious integrity;

Open wide the eyes of my soul
that I may see good in all things;

Grant me this day some new
vision of thy truth;

Inspire me with the spirit of
joy and gladness; and make me
the cup of strength to suffering
souls; in the name of the strong
Deliverer, our only Lord and
Savior, Jesus Christ.
