Almighty Father,
 
As we unite with the Jews of all nations in the search for peace,
we humbly ask Thee to make Thyself known to us.
Help our country to overcome any desire for self aggrandisement
and the fear that other people or nations may us.
Let the spirit of understanding
and cooperation
inspire us.
We would dedicate ourselves
here and now
to the achievement of freedom
for ourselves
and for the whole of humanity.
As witnesses to the reality of Thy being,
we would try
in our imperfect human way
to further the cause of righteousness
and justice
and truth
and let these lead us
to abiding peace.
We would remove the feeling of hatred
and the desire for vengeance
from our hearts
and recognise one another
as Thy children.
We thank Thee for life;
let us use it in Thy service.
Amen.
