World Prayer (Stephen Vincent Benet)

Prayer:

[Oh God,]

Grant us a common faith

that man shall know bread and peace –

that he shall know righteousness, freedom, and security –

an equal opportunity and an equal chance to do his best –

not only in our own lands, but throughout the world.

[Amen.]

– Stephen Vincent Benet
