Compassionate God,

you journey with us in all that we do

already present in all the people that we meet

and at work in the good they and we choose to do.

Bless the people of [insert country here].

May their hands and hearts be committed

to bringing hope to those in despair,

food to those who are hungry,

water to those who thirst,

wisdom to those who desire the truth

and justice to those who are oppressed.

Grant that we may share these tasks

as we walk alongside our sisters and brothers.

Bless us that we may recognise you

in the day to day struggles of all

as we seek to live your life to the full.
