Prayer for peace: one family
Lord God, Father of all,
We, your children, are all members of the same human family, your family.
We implore you to help us to accept your peace,
To be at peace with ourselves and to live in peace with others.
Help us to seek wisdom and justice in all we do.
Help us to be more understanding and compassionate when dealing with others,
To be ready to forgive when wronged,
To be willing to love when hurt and
To strive for harmony and peace when threatened.
Eternal Father, in your mercy, hear our prayer
And grant us your everlasting peace.
