Lord, help me find good in a world that seems so evil. 

May I respond with love when hate is all around. 

Lead me to walk away from comflict. 

Make me quick to forgive when I’ve been wronged. 

Lord may I be kind instead of righteous

When I want to be heard,
Help me to listen. 

When I want to be first,

Grant me patience to wait.

When I feel jealous,

Inspire gratitude for all You have given. 

When I won’t share what is “mine, ”

Remind me that it all belongs to you. 

Replace resentment with respect

And condemnation with understanding. 

Lord, may I remember that this troubled world 

Is in your hands

Love’s victory is sure. 

Guide me in Your peace.
