Eleanor Roosevelt Prayer (Return to the February 4, 2006 broadcast page)

A World Made New

Our Father,

who has set a restlessness in our hearts

and made us all seekers

after that which we can never fully find:

forbid us to be satisfied with what we make of life.

Draw us from base content

and set our eyes on far-off goals.

Keep us at tasks too hard for us

that we may be driven to Thee for strength.

Deliver us from the fretfulness and self-pitying;

make us sure of the good we cannot see

and of the hidden good in the world.

Open our eyes to simple beauty all around us

and our hearts to the loveliness men hide from us

because we do not try to understand them.

Save us from ourselves

and show us a vision of a world made new.

--Eleanor Roosevelt
