Prayer for the United Nations
O loving and gracious Creator,
Your love embraces all members of the human family,
Your care extends to the least of those among us,
to all our brothers and sisters in every part of the world.
You call us to a mature love and concern for the entire human community.
You call us as individuals, as a nation, as a united community of nations.
Let us hear this prayer in our hearts and respond with faith and good will.
Bless all efforts toward uniting peoples and nations.
Bless the United Nations
As it strives to be an authentic community,
As it witnesses to the needs of all, to the rights of all,
As it toils in the difficult work of peacemaking in all its aspects
Grant us the wisdom and the grace
To become a true global family
And witness your reign on this earth. Amen.
