one family

O God, who hast made of one blood all nations of men, mercifully receive the prayer that we offer for our anxious and troubled world.

Send Thy light into our darkness and guide the nations as one family into the ways of peace.  Take away all prejudice and hatred and fear.  Strengthen in us day by day the will to understand.

And to those who by their counsels lead the people of the earth, grant a right judgement, that so through them and us Thy will be done through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.”

-Ralph Cushman, Pocket Prayer Book, 1941
