here are words much better than mine...
Father of all mankind,
you look with great love on all your people
of whatever race, culture and religion.
We ask you to bless us this day
and send your Holy Spirit upon us
and upon all the diverse peoples of our world:
the Spirit of peace and justice,
of understanding and reconciliation.
May people of violence
allow themselves to be touched
by the plight of those who suffer,
and may your Spirit help broaden the horizons
and deepen the understanding of us all.
We make this our prayer
through Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Amen.
