O God, You are our refuge and our rock: we put our trust in You. Help us to work together in harmony in the work You have given us, and let our deeds bring honor to Your name.
Let us make your Word and commandments our sure foundation, and seek always to forgive rather than condemn. Let us remember the generous love You have given us, and uphold each other in our trials.
Break the chains of fear and enmity we carry, and help us lift up the banner of love and compassion.
Extend the shelter of your mercy over those for whom we pray this day.
