The following is an inclusive prayer called the prayer of Pluralism. We are indeed committed to building a cohesive Carrollton.

Greetings and prayers
Greetings are made of three components;
i) an acknowledgment of the other,
ii) wishing to connect and
 iii) develop friendship.

All religious greetings have those components in addition to wishing each other peace so each can be drenched in peace, talk peace, walk peace and act peace. All greetings are synonyms of the same essence are a sample to represent all other religious and cultural greetings.

Creator of the universe
Please accept our gratitude in every name we call upon you; Manito, Yahweh, Elahi, Ishwar, Allah, Mahavira, Buddha, Wahe Guru, Ahura Mazda, mother earth and Jesus Christ.  

In your name we want to create a cohesive Carrollton, with care kindness and dignity to every one of the 122,000 residents of this beautiful City. 

Dear God,

  • Guide us to serve us with integrity and honesty;
  • Guide us to serve our communities with the spirit of volunteerism;
  • Guide us to do the right thing every moment of our life;
  • Guide us to open our hearts and minds toward our fellow beings;
  • Guide us to shed the arrogance in us, and enrich us with humility
  • Guide us to become conflict mitigaters and goodwill nurturers.
  • Protect our men and women in uniforms committed to our safety and well being;
Help us learn to respect the uniqueness you have blessed to each one of us here today;

And help us learn to respect everywhich way one worships you.

In your name, we bow to you.

Mike Ghouse
