O Lord, forgive

Our insensitivity to the needs of others,

O Lord, forgive.

Our prejudice and fear that prevent us from loving,

O Lord, forgive.

The narrowness of our vision and our shrinking from your demands,

O Lord, forgive.

Our resentment against those who have hurt us,

O Lord, forgive.

Our desire to do your work in our way,

O Lord, forgive.

Our impatience with those who are different from us,

O Lord, forgive.

Our failure to listen properly to other points of view,

O Lord, forgive.

Our fear of coming out of the fortress of our own souls

into fuller life and deeper love,

O Lord, forgive.

~Modern prayer from Toronto, Canada
