An Inspiring Prayer

Author Unknown

Heavenly Father, help us remember that the woman who cut us off in traffic last night is a single mother who worked nine hours that day and is rushing home to cook , help with homework, do the laundry and spend a few precious moments with her children.

Help us to remember that the disinterested young man who can’t make change correctly is a worried 19-year-old student, balancing his apprehension over final exams with his of not getting his student loans for next semester.

Remind us, Lord, that the man asking for in the same spot every day struggles with an addiction that we can only imagine in our worst nightmares.

Help us to remember that the couple walking slowly through the store aisles and blocking our shopping progress are savoring this moment, knowing that, based on the biopsy report she got back last week, this will be the last year that they go shopping together.

Heavenly Father, remind us each day, that of all the gifts you give us, the greatest gift is love. It is not enough to share that love with those we hold dear. Open our hearts not to just those who are close to us, but to all humanity. Let us be slow to judge and quick to forgive, show , and love.
