May I

Here is a series of wished and intentions from a leader of centuries, ago, Eusebius.
May I be no one’s enemy. and may I be the friend of that which is eternal, and abide
May I never quarrel with those nearest me: and if I do may I be reconciled quickly.
May I love, seek and attain only that which is good.
May I wish for all persons’ happiness and envy none.
May I never rejoice in the ill-fortune of one who has wronged me.
When I have done or said what is wrong, may I never wait for the rebuke of others, but always rebuke myself until I make amends.
May I win no victory that harms me or my opponent.
May I reconcile friends who are angry with one another.
May I. to the extent of my power. give all needful help to my friends and all who are in want.
May I never fail a friend who is in danger.
When visiting those in grief, may I be able by gentle and healing words, to soften their pain.
May I respect myself.
May I keep tame, that which rages within me.
May I accustom myself to be gentle. and never be angry with people because of circumstances.
May I never discuss who is wicked and what wicked things he has done. but know good men and follow in their footsteps
