A Prayer for Tolerance

I heard this tonight

Teach us to treasure the differences that distinguish one person from another.
Fill us with the strength to overcome senseless fear and hatred.
Open our hearts to the radiance that shines forth from every human soul.
Inspire us to shed our apathy;
remind us that it is our obligation to be responsible for one another.
Open our ears to the cries of all who are in need of our assistance.
Give us the courage to combat prejudice and intolerance wherever they exist.
Teach us to see eachother through your eyes, G-d.
In your eyes all people are equally loved, equally precious.
Bless us all with compassion, with kindness, and with peace. Amen
