Often we ignore the suffering of others - not just those who cry out in pain, but also those who suffer silently around us. May I be more sensitive today to those who could use a kinder word, an encouraging embrace, a sensitive listener to their story. How clear we are that we ourselves are sensitive, while too easily forgetting that so is everyone. Today may I be a person who leads with kindness, who listens well, and displays a generous heart. May everyone I meet today be blessed by my presence.
Dear God, Today may I not forget That I am only here to love, To heal the heart of the world, And to forgive the illusions Of myself and others. Make me an instrument Of a greater good. Amen.
