I am part of a weekly study/discussion group. We close each session with the following prayer, the author of which is anonymous:
Grant us, Lord God, a vision of your world as your love would have it:
- a world where the weak are protected, and none go hungry or poor;
- a world where the riches of creation are shared, and everyone can enjoy them;
- a world where different races and cultures live in harmony and mutual respect;
- a world where peace is built with justice, and justice is guided by love.
Give us the inspiration and courage to build it, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
