Prayer for Peace

Mir • Paz • Pace • Pokój • Friede • Peace • Béke • 平和 • Paz • Mír • Amani • Shalom

O God, you are the source of life and peace. Praised be your name forever. We know it is you who turns our minds as to thoughts of peace in this time of war. We pray that enemies begin to speak to one another; that those who are estranged join hands in friendship; that nations seek the way of PEACE.

Strengthen our resolve to give witness to these truths by the way we live. Give to us: understanding that puts an end to strife; mercy that quenches hatred; and forgiveness that overcomes vengeance. Empower all people to live your law of LOVE
