by Heather MacDonald, in That All May Be One (Toronto: United Church of Canada, 2004)
Our Father who mends earth and heaven
with a Mother’s passion,
Holy and blessed be your name.
May your will be done through us.
Give us this day the strength and humility
needed for action.
Forgive us our insensitivity,
and help us ask to be forgiven.
Save us from detours and despair,
and lead us not into the temptation
For your glory in human community
alive with equity and truth.
Now and forever. Amen.
