Racial Harmony

For Racial Harmony

God and Father of all, in your love you made all the nations of the world to be a family, and your Son taught us to love one another. Yet our world is riven apart with prejudice, arrogance, and pride. Help the different races to love and understand one another better. Increase among us sympathy, tolerance and goodwill, that we may learn to appreciate the gifts that other races bring to us, and see in all people our brothers and sisters for whom Christ died. Save us from jealousy, hatred, and fear, and help us live together as members of one family at home in the world, sons and daughters of one Father who live in the liberty of the children of God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

*Book of Common Order of the Church of Scotland
