Boundless Sea of Love and Energy,
our future and our God,
may all your dreams for us come true:
your steady and motherlike imaginings,
and your fatherly hopes,
your creative purposes evident everywhere in the world.
Guide us to our truest selves,
co-creators with you of this environment.
Persuade us to be worthy inheritors
of the astonishing evolving reality in which we live:
appreciators of the daytime in all its colors and aromas,
admirers of the heavens at night,
reverent caretakers of our generous green earth,
respectful of everything alive —
especially of our fellow humans
in all their bewildering diversity.
May it be so.

William Cleary in Prayers to an Evolutionary God
