Our God and God of our fathers:
We are grateful for those
whose lives are consecrated
to the service of man.
May we be blessed in our deliberations
so that where there is ignorance and superstition,
there may be knowledge and enlightenment;
Where there is prejudice and hatred,
there may be tolerance and love;
Where there is fear and suspicion,
there may be confidence and trust;
Where there is tyranny and oppression,
there may be freedom and justice;
Where there is illness, hunger and poverty,
there may be healing, sustenance and bounty;
Where there is strife and discord,
there may be harmony and tranquillity.
Amen.
