Prayer by Jonathan Montaldo


Not a day goes by that I do not find myself

judging and condemning the sins and failures of others.

With the slightest examination of my conscience,

my lack of compassion is obvious to me.

Soften my judging heart, Lord.

Let me see myself for who I truly am,

a sinner among sinners.

Quiet my judging heart.
