Thank you for the ability to do what we can to help ourselves.
Help us to remember, though, that ultimately we are helpless. Remind us that when it comes to ultimate things we are totally dependent on you. Remind us that even when it comes to temporal things, we have no ability to help ourselves unless you give it to us.
There come times in this life when we need the help that you offer to us through others; give us grace to accept it and to appreciate it.
There also come times when we need to offer help to others; give us love to offer it and give them grace to accept it.
Help us all to remember that we are all helpless. Help us all to rely on you with great trust. Help us to help each other with great love.
