God of all nations
God of all the nations, so many of your children are crying out to you
worn down by injustice and suffering.
Help us to fulfil our goal of helping to make real the vision
that Christ spoke of as ‘the kingdom of God’
where justice reigns.
Help us to foster compassion one for another,
tolerating damage to no one and oppression by no system.
As we remember those living with HIV at this time
may we use all our energy and imagination
and trusting in your steadfast love
be united in conquering disease and fear.
