An Optimist Prayer


Let us pray


Lord, we pray that you help us develop optimism as a philosophy of life, thus demonstrating our faith in you.


Help us also to take an active interest in good government and civic affairs, thus bringing honorable leadership to our community.


Lord, instill in us a respect for both God's law and civil law, thus encouraging the youth to do likewise.


Help us to work for international accord, for children are the first to be hurt in conflict.


Lord, aid us in promoting friendship among all people, for they are also our neighbors.


Help us to encourage the development of youth, for they are our hope for the future.


Lord, instill in us an understanding that the giving of ourselves in service to others will advance the well being of all humankind.


In your name we pray
