Prayer for Interfaith Meetings

Lord of all creation, we stand in awe before You, impelled by visions of the harmony of man. We are children of many traditions - inheritors of shared wisdom and tragic misunderstanding, of proud hopes and humble successes. Now it is time for us to meet - in memory and truth, in courage and trust, in love and promise. In that which we share, let us see the common prayer of humanity; in that in which we differ, let us wonder at the freedom of man; in our unity and our differences, let us know the uniqueness that is God. May our courage match our convictions, and our integrity match our hope. May our faith in You bring us closer to each other. May our meetings with past and present bring blessings for the future. Amen.
