Every day we use things; every day we use items, equipment, processes, and procedures in order to accomplish those tasks, jobs, and goals that we need to accomplish.
Help us, O God, to use what we use with care and with gratitude.
Deliver us, O God, from the sin of ever seeing other people as things to be used to accomplish what we need to accomplish.
Help us rather to see ourselves as fully human partners with them and to see them as fully human partners with us in the pursuing of your will.
Help us, O God, to treat each other with care and with respect.
