Lord God, Sovereign of all,
We need Your wisdom and compassion
    to flood the corridors of power
    in our world.
May Your Kingdom come.

We need creativity and courage
    to guide and uplift the least
    in our word.
May Your Kingdom come.

We need Your mercy and peace
    to still the conflict and hatred
    in our world.
May Your Kingdom come.

We need Your healing and life
    to bring wholeness to the broken and diseased
    in our world.
May Your Kingdom come,
    and may Your will be done
    on earth as it is in heaven.
Amen.

John van de Laar, South African Methodist worship minster
