A Prayer for Our Country
We hold before You our beautiful country,
Giving thanks for the wonders around us:
The diversity and creative power of our nation
Enveloped in the green of life
Under a sky in constant change
Reminding us of the breath of God around us.
We lift before you our present uncertainty,
Asking you to help us to understand one another
And to move forward together
With determination, compassion and respect.
Show us how to live together:
Loving all our neighbours,
Striving to follow Your example
of service and sacrifice.
