Give Me The Grace

Give Me The Grace


Give me the grace to care without neglecting my needs, 

the humility to assist without rescuing, 

the kindness to be clear without being cold, 

the mercy to be angry without rejecting, 

the prudence to disclose without disrespecting my privacy, 

the humor to admit human failings without experiencing shame,

the compassion to give freely without giving myself away.
