A Prayer for the Twelve Days of Christmas
Holy One, I pray for peace between peoples
and the wisdom of leaders.
I pray for peoples,
and for the spirit that may unite us together.
I pray for a sense of identity
which is more profound than national, but global.
I pray for peace on earth,
good will toward all,
and a song of joy everywhere.
Help us to mend the earth, O God.
I pray for people – here and everywhere –
that we may grow in understanding,
and in faith.
Help the religions of the world not cause division,
but nurture peace.
Help me understand my place in the world.
