This is the Collect (prayer) that our Confirmation Class wrote to use at the Morning Prayer service they led this morning.
I have hope for this generation :)
O Great Spirit, Almighty God. Thank you for food on my plate and a roof over my head. We pray for racial and gender equality, especially in the third world. We pray for world peace, sharing throughout the world, solving problems without resorting to violence. Protect those who protect us. We pray for the homeless, the hungry, the sick, those in the middle of wars. We pray that LGBTQ people be accepted on earth and in heaven. Give us the strength we need to change our pain into the power to serve others. Amen.
