Prayer for Sunday

If it is not right
do not do it;
if it is not true
do not say it.
~ Marcus Aurelius

Oh Almighty and Everlasting God.
Creator of Heaven, Earth, and the Universe:
Help me to be, to think, to act what is right,
because it is right;
Make me truthful, honest and honorable in all things;
Make me intellectually honest for the sake of right and honor
and without thought of reward to me.
Give me the ability to be charitable, forgiving and patient with my fellowmen –
help me to understand their motives and their shortcomings –
even as Thou understandest mine!
Amen, Amen, Amen.

(a favorite prayer of President Harry S. Truman,
from David McCullough’s 1992 biography of President Truman)
