A Moslem Prayer

O God, do not let me be as a butcher of sheep
and do not let me as a sheep be killed by the butchers.

O God, help me to speak the truth in the face of the strong,
and help me not to lie to gain the applause of the weak.

O God, if you give me money, do not take my happiness;
and if you give me power, do not take my wits;
and if you give me success, do not take my humility;
and if you give me humility, do not take my dignity.

O God, help me to see both sides of the picture,
and do not let me accuse my opponents of treachery
just because they have a different point of view.

O God help me to love people as I love myself and to
keep a check on myself as I keep a check on others.

O God, do not let me become boastful if I am successful,
and do not let me despair if I fail, but remind me
always that failure is the experiment that precedes success.

O God, let me be gentle with others; teach me that forgiveness
is the highest standard of power and that revenge is
the greatest indication of weakness.

O God, if you take all my money, leave me hope;
and if you take my success, leave me the power to overcome failure;
and if you take my health, leave me faith.

O God, if I have wronged others, give me the opportunity to apologize;
and if people have wronged me, give me the power to forgive.

O God, if I forget you, do not forget me.
