First of all, I’d like to express my sincere condolences to the family of George Floyd. I’m sure you’d agree with me that regardless of the circumstances, no human being deserves to die in that way. To all the families who’ve suffered a loss at the hands of the CoVid-19 pandemic, you’re in my prayers. All these challenges disrupt our peace. And in my opinion, if there was ever a time for prayers for peace, it’s now!
I pray that you find the following 3 prayers for peace, useful & empowering.
Saint Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; Where there is hatred, let me sow charity; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is error, the truth; Where there is doubt, the faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; and Where there is sadness, joy. O, Divine Master, Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console; To be understood as to understand; To be loved as to love; For it is in giving that we receive; It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; And it is in dying to ourselves that we are born to eternal life.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as he did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that he will make all things right if I surrender to his will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with him forever in the next. Amen.
World Peace Prayer
Dear God, I pray for world peace. Jesus you said, “I, when I am lifted up on the earth, will draw all men to myself.” As I lift my thoughts to the high consciousness of peace, I help lift the thoughts of all people throughout the world to peace. God, what a blessing it is to know that I can contribute to the peace of this world through prayer. My prayers reach out to unfold all nations and people of the earth. I know that the same presence of peace that is within me resides in people everywhere – no matter who they are, or where they live. No matter what religion we profess, each person has been created with the peace of God at the center of his or her being. God’s peace harmonizes all seeming disagreements and dissolves all differences. God’s peace brings great freedom to all. My prayer and my vision of the world is of a peaceful planet. As I hold to this prayer and vision, I remember that peace begins with me. I pray, in Jesus Christ name, Amen.
