All through today, O God, help me,
to be quick to praise and slow to criticize;
to be quick to forgive and slow to condemn;
to be quick to share and slow to be selfish.
Grant me all through today,
complete control over my temper, that I may be slow to anger;
complete control over my tongue, that I may speak no hasty word.
Grant that all through today,
so that I may help everyone and hurt no one;
so that I may find true joy in living. Amen.
