Lead us, O Lord, through the difficult ways of this world into a time of taking stock, a time of listening for your voice and a time of renewal. Help us to make wise decisions that impact our lives and the lives of others. Save us from our sins and ourselves; save us from our prejudices and give us the grace to listen to those who differ from us. Help us to see beyond our own opinions to hear what others honestly have to say.
Bind us to you and to each other into one great human family. Only you can help us to show malice to none and love towards all. Unite us an effort to show in specific tangible ways today love towards neighbor and self. In Jesus name, Amen.
