A Litany for the World
One: Where ignorance, self-love and insensitivity have fractured life in community,
Many: give your light, O God of love.
One: Where injustice and oppression have broken the spirit of peoples,
Many: give your light, O God who frees.
One: Where hunger and poverty, illness and death have made life an unbearable burden,
Many: give your light, O God of grace.
One: Where suspicion and hatred, conflict and fear have challenged your goodness,
Many: give your light, O God of peace.
One: Eternal God, open the eyes of the nations and peoples so that they may walk in the light of love: remove the ignorance and stubbornness of nations and peoples so that they may drink from the fountains of your goodness.
Today in chapel we prayed for the world, for world leaders, for those in need, for all of us to join together for making God’s world a more just and thriving world.
