Grant us, O God,
A vision of your world as your love would have it:
A world where the weak are protected,
and none go hungry or poor.
A world where the riches of creation are honored and shared,
so everyone might enjoy them.
A world where different races, cultures, and creeds
live in peace and harmony, with equal regard.
A world where peace is built with justice,
and justice is guided by love.
Grant us the inspiration and courage, O God, to go forth with willing hearts, minds, and bodies to build such a world, through Christ Jesus.
And may the God of Hope fill us with every comfort and joy in believing. May the peace of Christ abound in our hearts and minds, and may the Holy Spirit gift and guide us, now and forever.
In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen
