Prayer to Commerce

Commerce is not just a means, but an end.
The buying and selling, the trade that Commerce is, unites people in strong bonds.
Commerce is therefore one of the bases of community.
Thanks to Commerce, then, for establishing and contributing to our society.
We serve you in this way:
by dealing fairly, but with an eye on profit, thereby contributing to human society, ourselves acting like you.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, be flattered by our commerce and join with us,
Commerce, god of prosperous social relationships.
