Wider Than Ourselves

WIDE LOAD

Grace us, O God,
with the desire to be humble.
We acknowledge you as our source,
the fountainhead of our intrinsic worth.

 

Without you we are selfish,
self-absorbed people
who seek our own comforts and security.

 

By your grace we can rise out of our preoccupations
and grow in compassion for others,
especially the poor and forgotten.

 

Enliven us to live wider than ourselves.
Amen
