O God, bless this day we share together.
Help us to stand for the hard right against the easy wrong.
Save us from habits that harm.
Teach us to work as hard and to play as fair
in your sight alone as if all the world saw.
Forgive us when we are unkind and help us
to forgive those who are unkind to us.
Keep us ready to help others at some cost to ourselves.
Send us chances to do some good every day
and so to grow more in your grace and favor.
