A Simple Prayer

Father,

Help me to show others the same grace that I don’t deserve but so often require from them.  Help me not to become hung up in questioning others’ motives but to honor them by taking them at their words, even if it becomes costly to me.  Help me not to think more of myself than I ought.  Help me to be quick to confess, quick to repent, quick to forgive, and quick to share in others’ joy.  I pray that my anger would be brief and my patience enduring.  May I decrease so that you may increase in me.

Amen.
