For Others

I offer up unto Thee my prayers and intercessions, for those especially
who have in any matter hurt, grieved, or found fault with me, or who
have done me any damage or displeasure.

For all those also whom, at any time, I may have vexed, troubled,
burdened, and scandalized, by words or deeds, knowingly or in ignorance;
that Thou wouldst grant us all equally pardon for our offences against
each other.

Take away from our hearts, O Lord, all suspiciousness, indignation,
wrath, and contention, and whatsoever may hurt charity, and lessen
brotherly love.

Have mercy, O Lord, have mercy on those that crave Thy mercy, give grace
unto them that stand in need thereof, and make us such as that we may be
worthy to enjoy Thy grace, and go forward to life eternal. Amen.

“Thomas à Kempis
