We thank you, O God, for bearers of hope and peace in all times and all places: for those who govern, when they set things right for the poor, meek and needy; for anointed prophets, who speak and act in your spirit—in wisdom, understanding, and equity.  And we thank you for reminders, gentle or urgent, that we, too, should be agents of harmony, reconciliation, peace, justice, and righteousness.  Make us advocates of your vision for the world.  Amen.
