A Noble Spirit

Dear Lord,


There are times in life when situations change and become the opposite of what I expected. Suddenly, how others react makes us feel bad. Then for a moment, thoughts and emotions seem to spiral out of control. As humans, we react in very different ways, and sometimes we can easily hurt others with our words or actions. Help me to think carefully before speaking or acting, to be patient, keeping in mind that my relationship with others depends largely on my understanding of them. Work in me a noble and submissive spirit.
