Prayer for Peace
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear,
though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea …—(Psalm 46:1-2 )
Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy
In this time of uncertainty and distress.
Give us strength to comfort the fearful,
To tend the sick, and to assure the isolated of your love.
God of compassion,
In their loneliness, be their consolation.
In their dismay, be their hope.
In their darkness, be their light.
Renew their energy and guide people in their new realities
Guide them with wisdom and strength and discernment.
You are the Prince of peace, Lord of lords, the King of kings.
We praise you for your goodness - Amen
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.—(John 14:27)
