Prayer for Peace
St. Francis Province, North India
O gracious God, we thank you for the men and women who walked the
path of peace to gift peace in the lives of people, in society, and in the world at large.
We join our hands and our hearts, as we come for
your blessing, especially the
gift of peace.
Lead humanity in the path of peace and
strengthen us to be instruments of peace.
Heal all that divides humanity, and
take away all that hinders peaceful living.
Let humanity experience soothing balm of forgiveness,
the calmness of peace, and the
bond of unity.
Guide the leaders of nations that they may work for peace in their nations.
Make us ambassadors of peace and let your glory be praised by our deeds.
We make this prayer through Jesus Christ,
the prince of peace and
the Holy Spirit, the source of peace, Amen.
