Almighty Father,
 
We thank Thee
for the opportunities this day gives unto us –
opportunities of thought and prayer,
for self-examination and self-dedication.
We humbly ask Thee
to help us to feel Thy presence in our midst
renewing our hope and our faith.
At this sacred moment,
we remember our failings.
Against Thee,
Thee only have we sinned,
but Thou art our Father
and knowing our weakness
dost guide us to better achievement,
if only we surrender ourselves to Thee.
Let us then overcome the evil
which separates thee from us.
May we hear Thy charge
to be faithful to the religion of our Fathers.
Give us the courage to obey,
even if obedience means sacrifice and suffering.
Give us renewed joy, Oh Lord,
by endowing us with the power to overcome fear
and to create happiness
for those we love
and for the stranger within our gates.
Let us ever seek to serve Thee
by serving one another in sincerity and truth,
and so bring nearer the time of peace and happiness
for all humanity.
Oh God,
we thank Thee for life.
Let us use it in Thy service.
Amen.
