Prayer Wheel

This came from the prayer wheel that Heather posted, and I think it is nice here: 

I would be true, for there are those who trust me;
I would be pure, for there are those who care;
I would be strong, for there is much to suffer;
I would be brave, for there is much to dare;
I would be brave, for there is much to dare.

I would be friend of all–the foe, the friendless;
I would be giving, and forget the gift;
I would be humble, for I know my weakness;
I would look up, and laugh, and love and lift.
I would look up, and laugh, and love and lift.

I would be faithful through each passing moment;
I would be constantly in touch with God;
I would be strong to follow where He leads me;
I would have faith to keep the path Christ trod;
I would have faith to keep the path Christ trod.

i would be true – howard arnold walter – 1906

  1. This brings to mind some words of Mother Theresa

    The Final Analysis
    People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;
    Forgive them anyway.

    If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.

    If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway.

    If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
    Be honest and frank anyway.

    What you spend years building, someone may destroy overnight; Build anyway.

    If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.

    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.

    Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
    Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

    You see, if the final analysis, it’s all between you and God;

    It was never between you and them anyway.
