Source of wisdom,
Revealer of truth,
Beacon of integrity,
Inspire us to tread a path of honesty and good intentions.
Open our eyes to see when enthusiasm and creativity
Have right action and sound policy as their purpose.
Remind us that when our disagreements are for your sake,
And in the service of goodness and communal fortitude,
There can be holiness in dialogue and discourse
In compromise and partnership,
In caution and progress
That can all move us towards resolution.
Help us overcome fear and misunderstanding
And to foster avenues of communication that will engender
A sense of honor among us.
May we conduct ourselves here and out in the community in such a way
That cooperation and a desire for peace
Will foster unity among people who come from many backgrounds
And who hold many different viewpoints.
Blessed are You, Eternal One, whose Oneness pervades creations
And makes us mindful that we, too, are one.
