Keeping our head clear.

"Every major horror of history was committed in the name of an altruistic motive.  Has any act of selfishness ever equaled the carnage perpetrated by disciples of altruism?"
- Ayn Rand

God, help us today to be pure in heart.
May we serve others for the sake of service, and not of self.

May we reach far beyond what benefits us. 
May we strive for what will benefit others.

May our sacrifice be true.
May our love be pure.

Teach us to value a perspective outside of our own.
Teach us to acknowledge, to honor, and to embrace the same. 

Protect us (and those we serve) from our selfishness.
Even more so, protect us from our best intentions.
