Give us the kindness to hear with compassion,
to offer support, loving comfort, and care.
Give us the courage to do what is needed,
the wisdom to choose what is right and most fair.
Give us the vision to see what is possible.
Give us the faith that will help pave the way
for a present that's hopeful,
a future that's peaceful.
Give us the heart to bring joy to each day.
