Prayer for Peace
Out of the depth of chaos,
We cry to you, o Lord, God of peace,
Out of the depth of suffering,
We cry to you, o Lord, God of mercy,
Out of the depth of fear,
We cry to you, o Lord, God of love.
Loving God, hear our voice
As we call for peace in our confused world.
Enlighten our mind
To learn your manners of making peace,
To console those
Who suffer for justice.
Loving God, we are asking:
Send your Holy Spirit
To guide us into the journey of peace
Which you have started –
A peace that this world cannot give. Amen
