Prayer for a great heart

Keep us o God from all pettiness,
Let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with fault-finding and leave off all self-seeking.
May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to face,
without self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgment, and always generous.
Let us always take time for all things
and make us grow calm, serene and gentle.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses, to be straightforward and unafraid.
Grant that we may realize that it is the little things of life that create differences,
that in the big things of life we are as one.
And, Lord God, let not forget to be kind!
