Said in unison:

God of wisdom and understanding, have mercy upon us as we confess our sin.  Your children are scattered; language keeps them apart.  Forgive our cultural pride that refuses to learn the language of another.  Forgive us the barriers of insensitivity that repel those whom you seek to call through us.  By your Spirit’s power undo the plight of Babel by the miracle of Pentecost, to the end that all may hear the gospel and praise the risen Christ with one voice.
