Mother Teresa's Lenten Prayer

Mother Teresa has never been known for what she has said but her fame rests on the wonderful things that she has done for the poor and sick in Calcutta and the rest of the impoverished world. The prayer posted here will remain a favorite of mine because it encourages us to do good things despite what other people say and think. A timely prayer to help us through our daily lives

A Lenten Prayer By Mother Theresa - It Is Between You And God

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
 If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
