Collect of Club Women of America
Keep us, O God, from pettiness; let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with fault finding and leave off self-seeking.
May we put away all pretenses and meet each other face to face- without self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgment and always generous.
Let us take time for all things; make us grow calm, serene, and gentle.
Grant that we may realize that it is the little things that create differences; that in the big things of life we are at one.
And may we strive to touch and to know the great common human heart of us all.
And, O Lord God, let us forget not, to be kind.
