Please help me to stop getting worked up about how blind others are to their problems and faults and to turn my eyes inwards into my own heart.
Help me to see and confront my own brokenness and sinfulness so that I can look upon another sinner with Your love and compassion and see Your image in them, no matter how flawed they are.
Help me to surrender my pride so that I can escape from self-concern and not judge my brothers and sisters.
Forgive me for the times I fail to be a light to others, and even more so for the times when I add to the darkness.
Help me to empty myself so that I can be merciful as You are merciful.
And thank You for being so patient with me, and for loving deeply those whom I fail to love.
