“For self-righteousness that will not compromise, and for selfishness that gains by the manipulation of others, forgive us, O God.
For the lust of money or power that drives to kill, forgive us, O God.
For trusting in the weapons of war and mistrusting the councils of peace, forgive us, O God.
For hearing, believing, and speaking lies about other nations, forgive us, O God.
For suspicions and fears that stand in the way of reconciliation, forgive us, O God.
For words and deeds that encourage discord, perpetuate racist assumptions, sexist stereotypes, and classist attitudes—for everything that contributes to oppression, forgive us, O God.
