A Collect for Club Women

Keep us, Oh God from pettiness.

 Let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.

Let us be done with faultfinding,

 and leave off self seeking.

May we put away all pretense

and meet each other

face to face without prejudice.

May we never be hasty in judgment

and always generous.

Let us take time for all things,

Make us grow calm, serene, and gentle.

Teach us to put into action

our better impulses,

straight forward and unafraid.

Grant that we may realize

it is the little things that create differences,

that in the big things in life we are as one.

And may we strive to touch and to know

the great common, human heart of us all.

And, Oh, Lord God,

let us forget not to be kind.
