Let us pray

that strength and courage abundant

be given to all who work for a world

of reason and understanding;

that the good that lies in every person's heart

may day by day be magnified;

that all will come to see more clearly

not that which divides them,

but that which unites them;

that each hour may bring us

closer to a final victory,

not of nation over nation,

but of humankind over their own evils and weakness;

that the true spirit

of joy,

of beauty, of hope,

and above all of abiding faith -

the peace to build and grow,

to live in harmony

and sympathy with others,

and to plan

for the future

with confidence.
