Prayer for Peace
Peace is a period free of war and turmoil, both externally and within Oneself. Therefore in times of internal or external strife a prayer of peace can be the best option. Especially in today’s world where war has become a common occurrence, with terrorists preying on the faithful, and suicide rates on the rise.
Even though times are uncertain, we can always turn to God and he will not only listen to our prayers but also help us follow the right path of righteousness and peace. Some effective prayers for peace are;
Prayer for Peace
“Lord we pray for the ability to be gentle;
the power to be forgiving;
the patience to be understanding;
and the persaviarance to accept the consequences
of holding on to what we believe to be right.
Father may we place our trust in the power of goodness to overcome evil
and the power of love to overcome hatred.
Lord we pray for clear vision so as to see and the faith to believe
in a world free from violence,
a new world in which fear shall no longer lead men or women to commit injustice,
nor a world where selfishness makes them bring suffering upon others.
Help us to offer 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 and women were created.
