We Pray for Peace
Today on United Nations Day we pray for peace.
O Loving Creator,we remember that war and violence continue tomaim, kill and destroy. Hundreds of thousands of human beings look at their sisters and brothers over the barrels of guns, cannons and missiles.Help us to hear your voice that counsels forgiveness,compassion, patience and dialogue. Help us to “thirstafter ever greater justice,” so that we might contributeto a peaceful world. Help us to act on behalf of peace,not only today, but all of the days of our life.
The prayer is adapted from Education for Justice.
