Father, when we feel alone and burdened, let us feel                          
your gentle touch.  Be with us this day as we make                             
decisions that involve those who trust us.  Teach us                           
that marvelous lesson that it is very possible we                              
may be mistaken occasionally.  When we are                                     
wrong, make us willing to admit it and when we                                 
are right, make us easy to live with.          Amen.
