Keep us, oh God, from pettiness.
Let us be large in thought, in word, in deeds.
Let us be done with fault finding and leave off self-seeking.
May we put away all pettiness and meet each other face to face, without self-pity and prejudice.
May we always be patient, never hasty in judgment and always be tolerant.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses, straight forward and unafraid.
Let us take time for all things, make us calm, serene, and gentle.
Grant that we may realize that it is the little things in life that create differences; that in the big things of life we are as one.
May we strive to touch and to know the great common heart of us all.
And, oh God, let us not forget to be kind.
My plan is to start my day with this prayer each day in the month of June.
