Thank You for the many ways we affirm Your presence and purpose,

Forgive our violation of Your creation.
Forgive our violence toward each other.
We stand in awe and gratitude for Your persistent love for each and all of Your

Grant to all and our leaders attributes of the strong; mutual respect in words and
deed, restraint in the exercise of power, and the will for peace with justice, for
Eternal God, Creator of the universe, there is no God but You. Amen.
