Lord of life and King of all nations,
We thank you for keeping us through the storms. The heavy downpour brightens the greenery on campus.
The union of Mid-autumn Festival and memoriam of Chung Yeung Festival salute the passing of the first month.
We pray for all new students and staff, especially for those coming from afar.
Lord give them a smooth transition and look after their family in distant lands.
May those who learn have understanding and perseverance. May those who teach have eloquence and insights.
Let the administrators have wisdom to rule and fairness to judge.
Let the laborers find satisfaction in their humble work and protect them from all harms.
Father of all souls we pray for world peace as we stand in memory of the decade long September 11 disaster.
We remember those who lost their loved ones in violence and hatred in New York, Palestine, Afghanistan, and Iraq.
Lord soothe their hurts and look after them. May all nations and peoples win friends instead of war,
turning enemies to good neighbors. Let us understand that if we do not show mercy to others we are not shown mercy.
The proud twin towers fell, strong steel melted, and young talents were brought to sudden oblivion.
Lord let us be thankful as we live moment by moment in your grace.
Merciful Father, cure those who are sick and give serenity to those who baffle.
Guide those who go astray, lest they may fall in shame.
Lord protect our University from all evils throughout the year. In the name of Christ. Amen.
