Ruler of the nations, you gather us together as a holy people in Jesus. In faith we pray: Bring joy to our hearts, O God. 

Deepen our sense of reverence and wonder for the natural world.  

Bring joy to our hearts, O God. 

Help us to know our interconnectedness with every person and all creation.  

Bring joy to our hearts, O God. 

Inspire developing countries to enact policies to reduce poverty.  

Bring joy to our hearts, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May the Lord look upon us with kindness, fill our hearts with peace, and raise us to new life in Christ. Amen.
