My own difficulties to lead me to be sensitive to others


Lord our God, you have made me in your own likeness

 and you love all that you have made. 

I thank you for all that has been positive in my life. 

I ask that I may live in such a way that 

I may learn from whatever 

I may find is negative or hurtful in my life.


 May my disabilities and weaknesses teach me 

how to be sensitive to individuals, 

that I may grow more caring and compassionate 

for others who experience difficulties. 

May I grow in strength of character through all that happens to me, 

living fully each day.
