"Our Father in heaven, though we
are experienced in the ways of men,
we know too little of Thy ways. But
Thou knowest us by name and by our
needs. We pray now that you would
turn our wayward minds and hearts
Forgive the faults and failures of
the past and make us free from them.
Forgive our slowness to see the good
in others and to see the evil in our-
selves. In our differences help us to
be kind; in our agreements help us
to be humble that Thy will might be
done through us. Amen."
(Mr. Cory in the Chair)
