SDG 1: No poverty


Lord, giver of all good things, Teach us to be generous so that no one need suffer from want, Teach us to invite others in so that no one be left behind. Show us again that we are all your creation, your beloved children. We commit everything and everyone, into your hands, Lord. Amen.
