Priory Post 12 – International Day of Peace

Posted: 19th August 2015

Mich. 14

International Day of Peace

Sunday, 21st September 2014, is the United Nations International Day of Peace. Please take a few moments of your day on Sunday to say this prayer together.

Lord, send us the gift of peace

Watch over the people of our world

who have been forced to flee their homes
and face violence and fear.

Lord, send us the gift of peace

Lead them to a place of safety,
comfort those who grieve
and bring healing to those in pain.

Lord, send us the gift of peace

Convert the hearts of those
who commit violence and wage war.
Turn them away from persecution towards peace.

Lord, send us the gift of peace

Turn hatred to understanding,
and anger to compassion.
Through your love, transform horror into hope.

Lord, send us the gift of peace

And fill us all with your Spirit
so that with one voice, throughout the world,
we may cry out:

Lord, send us the gift of peace

Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us…
