Something to remember

The Best Prayer I Have Heard In A Long Time

Heavenly Father, Help Us Remember That The Jerk Who Cut Us Off In
Traffic Last Night Is A Single Mother Who Worked Nine Hours That
Day And Is Rushing Home To Cook Dinner, Help With Homework, Do The
Laundry And Spend A Few Precious Moments With Her Children.

Help Us To Remember That The Pierced, Tattooed, Disinterested
Who Can't Make Change Correctly Is A Worried 19-Year-Old College
Student, Balancing His Apprehension Over Final Exams With His Fear Of
Not Getting His Student Loans For Next Semester.

Remind Us, Lord, That The Scary Looking Bum, Begging For Money In The
Same Spot Every Day (Who Really Ought To Get A Job!) Is A Slave To
Addictions That We Can Only Imagine In Our Worst Nightmares.

Help Us To Remember That The Old Couple Walking Annoyingly Slow
Through The Store Aisles And Blocking Our Shopping Progress Are
Savouring This
Moment, Knowing That, Based On The Biopsy Report She Got Back Last
Week, This Will Be The Last Year That They Go Shopping Together.

Heavenly Father, Remind Us Each Day That, Of All The Gifts You Give
Us, The Greatest Gift Is Love. It Is Not Enough To Share That Love
Those We Hold Dear. Open Our Hearts Not To Just Those Who Are Close
Us,But To All Humanity.

Let Us Be Slow To Judge And Quick To Forgive,Show Patience,Empathy
