Prayer for the Making of a Better World  


O Thou who compasseth the whole earth with Thy most merciful favour and willest not that any of thy children should perish. I would call down Thy blessing today upon all who are striving towards the making of a better world. I pray, O God especially—


For all who are valiant for truth:

For all who are working for purer and juster laws:

For all who are working for peace between nations;

For all who are engaged in healing disease;

For all who are engaged in the releif of poverty:

For all who are engage in the rescue of the fallen:

For all who are working towards the restoration of the broken unity of Thy Holy Church:

For all who preach the gospel:

For all who bear witness to Christ in foreign lands:

For all who suffer for righteousness’ sake.


Cast down, O Lord, all the forces of cruelty and wrong. Defeat all selfish and worldy-minded schemes, and prosper all that is conceived among us in the spirit of Christ and carried out to the honour of His blessed name. Amen.
