Poem: Those


Help me Lord, to acknowledge those
who labor within my sphere of influence,
for they too deserve my prayers for them.

Help me Lord, to lovingly admonish those
who lack a proper sense of discipline,
for like me, they require spiritual guidance.

Help me Lord, to quietly comfort those
who seek cooperation and genuine fairness,
that serves all of my neighbors equally.

Help me Lord, to forgivingly tolerate those
who are stronger or weaker than myself,
for we need to sustain each other via Love.

Help me Lord, to patiently teach those
who are in need of instruction and training,
so that they can live with abundance.

Help me Lord, to wisely scrutinize those
Scriptures that uplift my spirit and soul,
insuring that I praise You… in all things!
