Lord, we pray for the power to be gentle;
to be forgiving;
the patience to be understanding;

nor selfishness make them bring suffering to others.
Help us to devote our whole life
and thought and energy
to the task of making peace,
praying always for the inspiration
and the power
to fulfill the destiny for which we and all men were created
