From self–righteousness that will not compromise,
   and from selfishness that gains by the oppression of others,

O Lord, deliver us.1 

From the lust for money or power that drives to kill, R

From trusting in the weapons of war, and mistrusting the councils of peace, R

From hearing, believing, and speaking lies about other nations, R

From suspicions and fears that stand in the way of reconciliation, R

From words and deeds that encourage discord, prejudice, and hatred;
from everything that prevents us from fulfilling your promise of peace, R
