Help me to avoid self-centered prayers too much of the time. There is a hurting world out there, and I do believe that prayers for others make a difference. Even my closest friends do not often share their dilemmas. We put on a happy face for our brothers and sisters.
Be with me as I say this prayer for the larger world. Be with me as I implore you to answer the needs of others, to put solutions at the point of need—something that is in Your will all the time.
