When You Want To Pray For Others - II





I want to begin today not by thinking of myself but by thinking of others.
Be with those for whom today is going to be difficult,
those who must make tough decisions,
those who have problems to solve,
those who have challenges to face.
Be with those who are sad today,
those who are hurting because they miss someone they love,
those who are lonely,
those who wake up to a morning with no job.
Be with those who are happy today,
those who are going to be married soon,
those who bring happiness into the lives of others,
those who will walk in the sunshine of life today.
Give me throughout this day love and understanding for all I meet,
that I may always try to cry with those who cry,
and rejoice with those who are glad,
as you do for me. Amen.
