In defiance of corruption and falsehood,

we commit to truth and integrity

and we pray for honesty and uprightness

to increase in our world.

 

In defiance of apathy and hatred,

we choose to be proactive in love

and we pray for understanding and peace

to increase in our world.

 

In defiance of scepticism and cynicism,

we embrace the mystery of faith

and we pray for humility and wonder

to increase in our world.

 

In defiance of self-interest and human arrogance

we celebrate God’s salvation

and we pray for compassion and faith

to increase in our world.

 

In defiance of all that would oppose God’s purpose among us

we choose again to follow Christ,

and we continue to pray,

not just now, but at all times.

 

Amen.
