– Paul of Tarsus

Correctional Service of Canada Prayer

God of all the human family,
You have committed to us a ministry of care and protection for the good of all your people.
May we always recognize the God-created humanity of those we serve as of ourselves, which is the hope of our reconciliation.
Keep us ever mindful of your laws of love so that we may temper justice with mercy, exercise control with compassion.
May our motives and our actions conform to your will and fulfill your purposes all the days of this life so that we may share in the life to come.
