Collect For Club Women
Keep us Oh 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 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, oh Lord God, Let us forget not
to be kind.
Mary Stewart – 1904
History of the Collect for Club Women:
“The prayer was offered for publication under the title “A Collect for Club Women,” because at that time I felt that women working together with wide interest for large ends was a new thing under the sun, and that perhaps they had a need for special petition and meditation of their own. This must have been true, for the Collect has found it’s way about the world wherever English speaking women work together. In England and in its dominions and colonies of Great Britain, the associated Country Women of the World have made it their own and distribute it throughout the Empire.” – Mary Stewart
