Just God, you are the source of our peace. In Jesus’ name we pray: 

Show us the path of life, O God.  

You are our refuge: expand welcome and security for migrants, refugees, and immigrants. 

Show us the path of life, O God.  

You secure our destiny: encourage dialogue of understanding and respect for democracy. 

Show us the path of life, O God.  

You mark out our heritage: prosper the work of the United Nations and inspire collaboration among elected officials. 

Show us the path of life, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May God instruct our hearts by the light of the Holy Spirit and lead us to the fullness of joy, through Christ Jesus. Amen.
