For the good and not-so-good

For the hungry and the overfed, may we have enough.
For the mourners and the mockers, may we laugh together.
For the victims and the oppressors, may we share power wisely.
For the peacemakers and the warmongers, may clear truth and love lead us to harmony.
For the silenced and the politicians, may we speak words of truth.
For the unemployed and the overworked, may our impact on the world be kindly and creative.
For the troubled and the disgruntled, may we live together as wounded healers.
For the homeless and the homeowners, may our homes be simple, warm and welcoming.
For the vibrant and the dying, may we all die to live.

(From a New Zealand Prayer Book.)
