Prayer No. 3 "For the Human Family"


O God, you made us in your own image
and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: 
Look with compassion on the whole human family; 
take away the arrogance and hatred 
which infect our hearts; 
break down the walls that separate us; 
unite us in bonds of love; 
and work through our struggle and confusion
to accomplish your purposes on earth; 
that, in your good time, 
all nations and races may serve you 
in harmony around your heavenly throne; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
