Master of the Universe, Kind and Merciful Father, help me acquire the holy trait of kindness. Like Abraham and Sarah, who performed deeds of kindness all their days, may I show hospitality to worthy guests, and may my house be a "gathering place for the wise." May I have guests who are tzaddikim, and may I receive them with great love, respect and joy. Grant me the privilege of personally attending to their needs and serving them in every way. May I humble myself completely before the wise, until I become a spiritual channel for the light of Abraham and Sarah, and so attain the trait of true kindness.
