Order Our Lives
Order our lives by your wisdom, and care for our needs by your bounty.
Zoroaster (6th century BC, Persia)
Enable us to live in peace with one another, so that we can help each other in our work.
Take from us all threat of war and famine.
Make our animals fat and healthy, and make our crops grow abundantly.
In each village set a man of honesty as chief, and let every person respect his authority.
Above all, make us holy in all our thoughts and words and deeds.
