PRAYER WHEN YOU WANT TO BE A BETTER PERSON
O God, help me today to think of the feelings of others as
much as I think of my own.
If I know there are things which annoy people with whom
I live and work, help me not to do them.
If I know there are things which would please them,
help me to go out of my way to do them.
Help me to think before I speak, so that I may not thoughtlessly
or tactlessly hurt or embarrass anyone.
If I have to disagree with anyone, help me to do so with courtesy.
If I have to argue with anyone, help me to do so without
losing my temper.
If I have to criticize anyone, help me to do so with kindness.
If anyone has to criticize me, help me to accept it with grace.
Help me all through the day to treat others as I would
wish to be treated. Amen.
