A secular prayer (OK for atheists)



Reality known
and unknown
We celebrate
your creation
We're thankful that
we are made free
Let truth and beauty
be our aim

Let justice flow
for everyone
Forgive the wrongs
that we have done
As we forgive
those who do wrong
Lead us not into
temptation

Deliver us from
evil ways
Be our strong
vision every day
Give us the power
to be made whole
Give us the strength
to reach our goal






Unless the
perpetrator
of harm
seeks forgiveness
no amount of praying
for that person
will avail




Reciprocal
forgiveness
lies at the heart
of
global change




Forgiveness can move
us past millennia of
criminality
corruption
