God our Father, we bring before you our world - a world filled with divisions among nations, religions and ethnic groups all as a result of the struggle for power, wealth and might.
These divisions have caused the destruction of lives and properties.
Wars have destroyed homes and separated families.
In all of this your Trinity is a unique symbol of your unity and solidarity for us all.
In all these challenges, Lord, you remain united and in solidarity with us; yes Lord we thank you for this.
We ask you God our Father to send us your spirit of unity among nations, ethnic groups and among religions to inspire us to be in solidarity with one another.
May we remain united in solidarity as you, Father, Son and Spirit are one.
Prayer: Joe Turay, Sierra Leone/CAFOD
