Morning Prayer

Have been sitting in for Mikee and found this prayer at the bottom of her monitor.

Dear God,
When I communicate with others, help me to be quick to listen and slow to speak. Give me an open mind and an understanding heart. When I speak, help me not to be judgmental and condemning. May I strive to know first both sides of the issue before I pass judgment or form my own opinion. Help me to be gentle whenever I want to put across my thoughts, and help me to discern how I am to respond. Give me the right words to say that precisely convey the feelings of my heart without ever being offensive or rude to my family and to others. Make me a happy human being by living with these words,

"What would I do if I were in his place?"
