Brief Prayer I'm sure


Brief Prayer

I'm sure this prayer follows that of famous men, but the words come to me, I share them.

Lord, let me always see my own imperfections
before I look to those of others.
Let me always know my own brokeness
before I point out that of others.
Let me always be aware of the ways that I fail you
so that I do not look for the failings of others.
Lord grant me the grace always
to love You in Your immortal loveliness,
and to bear Your flame to those
who live in darkness.
Lord have mercy on a broken servant!

Praise to Jesus Christ, Lord Now, Lord Triumphant forever.
