Prayer to remember 6 August 1945
Forgive the human race, O Lord, for its desire to kill.
For placing more importance on the love of power than on the power of love.
For using your gifts – such as nuclear energy – for evil instead of good.
For turning away and denying our responsibility for the protection of your creation.
Forgive us for our complacency;
grant us the eyes to see what is right, and the voice to decry what is wrong.
For Jesus’ sake, and the sake of all humanity.
