A Prayer to Begin the Day from Charles Vaughan (1816-1897)

Lord God, make us watchful to benefit, and not to injure the minds and souls of those with whom we have to do this day; and give us grace, by word and influence and good example, to promote their happiness and their good; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Daily Prayer, Eric Milner-White and G. W. Briggs, eds. (London: Penguin Books 1959 edition of the 1941 original)
