Help Me, Lord

I’m guilty

Guilty as anyone

And I must confess right now

 

I’m guilty

Of judging people from what I perceive

When they are different in

Speech

Size

Shape

Color

Hairstyle

Ethnicity

Mannerisms

 

I see different

And I make an assessment

And it usually them less than myself

Oh, foolish pride

That would put me above others

 

Help me, Lord

Help to see past their

Speech

Size

Shape

Color

Hairstyle

Ethnicity

Mannerisms

 

Help me to see their heart

Help me to see them as equal,

Or even better

Than myself

Because most probably are

 

Help me not to judge

But to love

Unconditionally

Everyone I meet

 

Help me, Lord

Put aside preconceived prejudices

And notions

 

Help me, Lord

To see the heart

  1. Pete,
    Thank you for this one should hit right at home with each of us.
    This is so true in this world we live in.
    I am guilty of the same as I believe we all are & most definitely need Jesus to help us, because we are guilty of many different things.
    Thank you Jesus!!!
