A Prayer from Togo

Our Father in heaven,
you are the God of gods, the King of kings.
We ask you to bless our governments,
our leaders, our elders
and all those who are in powerful positions.
Give them a heart which abides by your will
so they no longer favour injustice,
but act for the well-being of all,
in all things.
Give us all humble hearts
so that we have good things,
right actions,
and your blessing forever for our country.
Bless the activities of the farmer, the fisherman,
the businesswoman, the artist, and all other workers.
After the dry season, send us the blessed rain
and favour us with a plentiful harvest
so that we may glorify you.
Have pity on the poor, the soldiers, the sick.
Help those who are alone
and console those who are devastated.
Support pregnant women and mothers.
Help the widows and widowers.
Be father and mother to all orphans.
God, bless your word for Christians,
and for non-believers,
so that they may be assured
and lean on you
to obtain forgiveness for their sins
and become your children.
O Lord, have pity on us.
You are the God of mercy.
You are the strength, the glory, the honour and the holiness,
forever and ever.
