Sisters planting seeds- Ecumenical Prayer for Peace:

“Loving God, we long for a life of peace with one another. When egoism and injustice prevail, when violence breaks out between people, when reconciliation seems impossible, you are the one who gives us hope and peace. When differences in language, culture or belief cause us to forget that we are your creation and that you have given us creation to take care of as a common home, then you are the one who gives us hope and peace. When people are played off against each other, when power is abused in order to use others, when events are manipulated to deceive others, then you are the one who gives us hope and peace. Teach us to treat each other justly and with compassion and to withstand corruption. Give us courageous women and men, who heal the wounds that hate and violence have left upon bodies and souls. Help us to find the correct words, gestures and means in order to promote peace. In whatever language we confess you as the „Prince of Peace“, let our voices also be raised clearly against violence and injustice. Amen.”
