Prayer for Peace

God of peace, make us like you. 

Transform us so that we become peace.

 

Dispel our anger.

Disperse our hate.

Soften our words.

Relieve us of judgement and condemnation.

Secure our fear and terror.

Heal our pain.

Guide us from revenge to forgiveness.

Do not allow us to dehumanize others with word or deed. 

Make us like you. 

Let us be peace.

Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man.
— Ghandi

Give us the courage to speak of love, unity and acceptance.

Make us humble and all us to open our wounds to you; so that they will not become violence.

Remove from us, the excitement of violence so we do not see it as entertainment.

Allow us to see and be present to those who are hurting, broken and in need. 

Make us like you.

Let us be peace.

 

Let us be peace.

Revel us into action.

Give us strength to

Advocate for peace as peace,

Confront our violence as peace,

Instigate change as peace,

Bring healing as peace and

End violence as peace.

 

God of peace, send your healing Spirit

To all victims of violence.

Walk with them, grieve with them, fill their emptiness with your healing.

Help us honor them by

Making us like you.

Let us be peace.

Amen.
