Prayer for Mildness and Patience

O my God, I beg of You to grant me peace with my neighbour,
For I cannot enjoy Your favour
If I do not live in union with my brothers and sisters.

I can preserve this union by mildness and patience.

Give then, I beseech You, these two virtues,
And grant that I may always speak and act kindly to all;
That I may suffer patiently for love of You
Whatever wrongs, injuries, or insults may be done me;
That not only I may not be displeased with anything
But that I may patiently suffer all that happens to me from others.
(St. Jean Baptiste de la Salle)
