3. For the Human Family

O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus you Son: Look with compassion on the [human family] ; take away the arrogance and hatred which infects our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

-- The Book of Common Prayer, page 815
