God, lover of us all, most holy one.

Help us to respond to you.

To create what you want for us here on earth.

Give us today enough for our needs.

Forgive our weak and deliberate offences,

just as we must forgive others

when they hurt us.

Help us to resist evil and to do what is good.

For we are yours, endowed with your power

to make our world whole.
