Prayer for the Human Family

Mother and Father of the world,
we pray for the whole human family.

Many nations are torn by war.
Grant them peace
and healing of their divisions.

Many communities are filled with crime.
Grant them deliverance from fear
and the hope of renewal.

Many families are divided by hate.
Grant them unity
and the blessing of love.

Many children are abandoned and afraid.
Grant them someone who loves them
and the promise of a future.
