A Prayer for World Peace

Posted on October 2, 2009. Filed under: Prayers | Tags: , , |

Lord, we pray for the power to be gentle; 
the strength to be forgiving; 
the patience to be understanding; 
and the endurance to accept the consequences 
of holding to what we believe to be right. 

May we put our trust in the power of good to overcome evil 
and the power of love to overcome hatred. 

We pray for the vision to see and the faith to believe 
in a world emancipated from violence, 
a new world where fear shall no longer lead men to commit injustice, 
nor selfishness make them bring suffering to others. 

Help us to devote our whole life and thought and energy 
to the task of making peace, 
praying always for the inspiration and the power 
to fulfill the destiny for which we and all men were created.
