Almighty Father,
 
In these times of difficulty and sadness,
we, thy children, would speak our hearts to Thee.
We long for the time of peace,
based on sincere foundations of justice and of truth.
We believe in the possibilities of brotherhood of people
putting the interest of the general number
before their own personal desires.
Since they can attain
this condition of thoughtfulness
through Judaism,
we humbly ask Thee
to make thyself more fully realised
in our midst.
Strengthen our purpose
to combat misery,
ignorance and sin,
and thus show forth our devotion to Thee.
In spite of our weaknesses,
let us be of use working with Thee
in the creation of righteousness
and the spread of love.
Renew our hope,
quicken our faith,
and let us walk with steadfastness
in the way of life.
Amen.
