A Prayer Let me be the one who can lift up others below him when he is prosperous, but the one who chooses not to inconvenience anyone when he himself is having tough times. Let me be the one who can sympathize with and ease the pains of others rather than the one who has to ask for help from others. Let me possess the will to give away generously rather than the desire to have things for free from others. Let me be the one who can imitate the noble disposition of the saints to help rectify the faults of others, rather than the one who tries to find faults with other. Let me be the one who understands the value of gratitude and returns kindness by carrying out philanthropic acts, rather than the ungrateful and ignorant one. Let me be the one who can act blind upon seeing others’ faults, the one who stand mute when he has to criticize others, and the one who can act deaf when others tell him immoral things. Last but not least, let me be the one who can be self-critical and can strive to attain a state of enlightenment.
