Prayer for Peace
Lord of lords, you want people to live together in peace. We pray for all those who shape world politics, that they may strive for peace to the utmost of their abilities. Show them how they can resolve tensions and prevent new wars.
Help those who carry responsibility to use their power for the benefit of the people, especially the poor and the disadvantaged, and thus for more justice in the world.
Make us long for a peaceful and non-violent world, and let our faith grow in your goodness. Fill our hearts with your peace so that we are ready to begin our work with ourselves. Amen
