Dear Creator,

We pause to rethink our mission and take glory in Your great creation.

May we have the knowledge to take advantage of Your power to heal, Your creation of new life and a spiritual door that can be opened only for the asking.

As our spiritual bodies start screaming from abuse, may we turn to Your natural source of renewal for healing.

When we differ from those in other lands, inspire us to send a letter of reconciliation rather than armies with weapons.

You inspire us to create religions that are indigenous to our native lands.

Every worshipper has the right and need to feel they have a special route to their Maker’s heart.

As we ponder over the strange spiritual ways of others, may we keep in mind that You made us all and we are all special to you.

May your way of understanding our spiritual needs become our way also.
