Prayers: “O Thou, whose kingdom is within,”
May thy presence be made known to us in mercy, beauty, love and justice. May thy kingdom come to be in the life of all humankind. May it come with peace, with sharing, and in a near time.
Give us this day our daily bread, free from all envy and alienation, broken and blessed in the sharing.
Keep us from trespass against others, and from the feeling that others are trespassing against us. Forgive us more than we have forgiven.
Deliver us from being tempted by lesser things to be heedless of the one great thing: the gift of thyself in us. Amen.
