(Suggested by Dennis Byrne's "A prayer for diversity")
Lord and God, Master of the Universe,
Creator of both material and spiritual worlds,
Bless and keep the oneness of humankind
Whom You made in Your image and likeness.
Let Your face shine on all human communities
Without respect of race, creed, national origin,
Gender, or sexual orientation.
Grant us the wisdom to be faithful stewards
Of Your splendid creation on Earth,
Living and non-living.
Look kindly and forgive our weaknesses
And here and now, and in the hereafter,
Guide us towards justice,
Infusing Your grace into our hearts and minds
So that we may be forever
Worthy of Your peace.
