God, please grant me,
The faith and judgment to make sound decisions, and
The courage to change those decisions when they’re wrong.
The everlasting hope that, together, our organization can and will be successful.
The fortitude to seek continuous improvement in everything we do.
Integrity and a just heart to do the right thing, even when no one is looking.
A charitable approach to my employees, my customers and my competitors.
The ability to focus on the vital few while ignoring the distracting many, and
The prudence to deploy our limited capital wisely.
Oh, loving God,
Allow me to work from a place of humility, forsaking my prideful thoughts.
Help me look to others for motivation, not as a source of jealous envy.
Give me the self-control to reject greed, striving for what is needed and nothing more.
Show me that the trappings and status of my position are temporary and undeserved.
Always remind me that my life’s mission is to serve others before myself,
Helping my organization grow by focusing on the growth of every team member.
Remind me to provide life-giving feedback and questions that encourage rather than belittle,
To view mistakes and failures as opportunities for learning and improvement.
Help me understand that all of us are smarter and more creative than one of us.
Give me the strength and endurance to persevere through times of trouble.
Give me the vision to see beyond today,
To always strive for a better tomorrow.
Help me to become a positive example for others in my thoughts, in my words, and in my actions.
I invite You into each and every minute of my life.
Grant me the peace that comes from Your eternal and infinite love, now and forever.
