We acknowledge that humanity’s never-ending hunger has harmed both our Earth and our people. While we give thanks for progress and development, we ask God to guide us in ending humankind’s greed. May God’s infinite knowledge grant us the ability and motivation to look beyond ourselves, our community, and our nation. May we practice compassion towards future generations, proceeding with awareness of the world they will inherit. To bring an end to the selfishness and gluttony that drives us, we ask God to continue to teach humankind contentment and compassion.
