forgive me

Forgive me, most gracious Lord and Father, if this day I have done or said anything to increase the pain of the world.  Pardon the unkind word, the impatient gesture, the hard and selfish deed, the faiture to show sympathy and kindly help where I have had the opportunity but missed it; and enable me so to live that I may daily do something to lessen the tide of human sorrow, and to add to the sum of human happiness; through Him who died for us and rose again, Thy Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ,

Amen.

-Ralph Cushman, Pocket Prayer Book, 1941
