Prayer for the week: (known to have been a favourite of Fr Scarborough)

Keep us, O Lord, from all Pettiness:
let us be large in thought, word and deed.
Let us be done with all fault-finding
and leave off all self-seeking.
May we put away all pretence and
meet each other face to face,
without self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgement
and always generous.
Let us take the time for all things and
make us grow calm, serene and gentle.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses, straight forward and unafraid.
And, O Lord God, let us not forget to be kind. Amen.
