Monday Prayer: Spectrum

For the hungry and the overfed
May we have enough.

For the mourners and the mockers
May we laugh together.

For the peacemakers and the warmongers
May clear truth and stern love lead us to harmony.

For the silenced and the propagandists
May we speak our words in truth.

For the unemployed and the overworked
May our impress on the earth be kindly and creative. 

For the troubled and the sleek
May we live together as wounded healers.

For the homeless and the cosseted
May our homes be simple, warm and welcoming. 

For the vibrant and the dying
May we all die to live.
