A Pilgrim’s Prayer

Filed under: — 4:20 pm

by John M. Haffert


If some things do not happen as they are scheduled, Lord, may I remember that I am a pilgrim not a tourist!

If I should get tired and inclined to become short-tempered, Lord, may I remember that I am a pilgrim not a tourist!

If my meal in a foreign country may not be to my particular liking, Lord, may I remember that I am a pilgrim not a tourist!

If any delays should occur and I should become anxious, Lord, may I remember that I am a pilgrim not a tourist!

If some other pilgrim is making noise so that I cannot hear the guide, Lord, may I remember that I am a pilgrim and not a tourist when I ask that person to be a bit more quiet!

If someone takes a better seat or more choice place, Lord, may I remember that I am a pilgrim not a tourist!

If I find myself last in line waiting, Lord, may I remember that I am a pilgrim not a tourist!

If I should get a chance to help another person, who always seems to be annoying me, Lord, may I remember that I am a pilgrim not a tourist!

But Lord, especially let me remember that what I find objectionable in another is really what you oftentimes find objectionable in me and let me remember this and forgive the other, as you are continually forgiving me!
