O Lord,

we live in a sin-laden world...

where we are quick to judge others,
but slow to look at our own faults;

quick to realise our own needs,
but slow to notice the needs of others;

wishing that others would bear our burdens,
but not willing to bear that of others,

murmuring for what we lack,
but forgetting the good things u give to us.

we are so slow to forgive others,
but quick to condemn those who offend us..

and so self-occupied, so self-obsessed, so self-absorbed.


only u can teach and help us to love, as u have loved,

to serve as u have served,
in the greatest form of humility when u washed ur disciples' feet.

guide us that we may cast our eyes on you,
as u help us to love those around,

to pray in sincerity for others,
just as u seeked forgiveness for us when u said, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. "


we are not worthy to be channels of your blessings.
but we seek that u use us, that YOUR NAME BE GLORIFIED in our thoughts, words, feelings and actions.

In Jesus' name I pray,
