Lord, enable me to see beyond the bright colours of success, power and wealth
to the gentler shades of vulnerability, need and justice.
That I may never spoil the canvas of anothers life by diminishing their sense of worth to inflate my own.
Father, bless me with the perspectives of love and forgiveness, and may your kingdom come, Amen.
