A united nation

Daily Reading for November 5

Bless our beautiful land, O Lord,

with its wonderful variety of people,

of races, cultures and languages.

May we be a nation of laughter and joy,

of justice and reconciliation,

of peace and unity,

of compassion, caring and sharing.

We pray this prayer for a true patriotism,

in the powerful name of Jesus our Lord.
