Tender Father, may I pause this morning to look at that which I keep uppermost in my life; 
And if it may not be worthy of Thy esteem, may I be bold enough to revise my ideals. 
With Thy compassion may I free my heart and mind of all unworthiness, 
Anand be given endurance to restore the empty places. Amen.
