A Prayer

+Dear Lord,

May I always remember:  whatever I do to them I do also to You.  May I never forsake Your command, “Love one another as I have loved you.”

  • May my thoughts of others be no longer my thoughts, but Your thoughts.
  • May my love for others be no longer my love, but Yours.
  • In my speech with others, may my words be no longer my words, but Your words.
  • May I serve others as You serve all men, seeking not to receive but to give.
  • May I see others not longer but You in them.

May Your thoughts dwell in my mind, Your love in my heart, Your words on my lips, that I may learn to love all men even as You, dear Lord, love me.
