BPW Collect

Keep us, O God, from pettiness;
Let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with fault-finding and leave off self-seeking.
May we put away all pretense and meet each other
face to face - without self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgment
and always be generous.
Let us take time for all things;
Make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses,
Straight-forward and unafraid.
Grant that we may realize it is the little things
that create differences, that in the big things
of life we are as one.
And may we strive to touch and to know the great,
Common human heart of us all, and
O Lord God, let us forget not to be kind.
Mary Stewart


The Collect was written by Mary Stewart in 1904. She had it published as a Collect for Club Women, because at the time she believed that women working together with wide interests and important goals was a new phenomenon, and that a special meditation of their own would give them a sense of unity. The Collect soon was adopted among working women throughout the world.
