A prayer for peace throughout the nations
Lord. We pray for all nations and especially for places where there is persecution, where there is violence, where there is indifference, anxiety, and alienation, that the whole world would come to know your healing love.
King of peace,
who longs for us to live in fellowship and unity,
send your Spirit of peace throughout our world.
Take from our hearts all prejudice and envy,
take from our hands the weapons of violence and take from our lips all words of cruelty,
that we may live as brothers and sisters,
one family in the love of your Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
(taken from The Canterbury Book of New Parish Prayers by M.J.Kramer)
Here’s hoping and praying that you have a good half term week!
