Prayers For Peace

We are molded, each one of us,
in the image of God,
And there’s a fingerprint within our souls
No one can erase
We pray for those who don’t belong
for anyone other than myself,
who put no value on human life.
To the nations and individuals who abuse and kill.
We are not called to be judges or juries,
But we are called agents of change,
And if the butterfly that flaps its wings
our attitude towards others should be
then so be it, Lord,
And it can generate storms
somewhere in the world
reach into the heart and soul of those
to whom we pray, and manifest
how valuable are they
for whom they have no love,
and how valuable they are
Which now brings tears to God’s eyes.

John Birch

Lord Jesus Christ, who is called the Prince of Peace, You Himself is our peace and reconciliation, who often said, “Peace to you” – please grant us peace.

Make all men and women witnesses of the love of truth, justice, and brotherhood. Remove from their hearts everything that threatens the peace. Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace.

May all the people of the earth be like brothers and sisters.

May longed-for peace blossom forth and reign always over us all. Amen.

St. John Paul II

Prayer For Peace in the World

Lord Jesus Christ,
You are the true king of peace.
Freedom is found in you.

Please free our world from conflict.
Bring unity to troubled nations.
May your glorious peace reign in every heart.

Take away all darkness and evil.
Protect the dignity of every human life.
Replace hate with your love.

Give knowledge to world leaders.
Free them from selfish ambition.
Eliminate all violence and war.

Glorious Virgin Mary,
Saint Michael the Archangel,
Every angel and saint:
Please pray for peace.
Pray for unity among nations.
Pray for unity among all people.
Pray for the weakest.
Pray for the suffering people.
Pray for the fearful.
Pray for the neediest.
Pray for all of us.

Jesus, Son of the living God, have mercy on us.
Jesus, hear our prayer.
Jesus, I trust in You!

Amen.

We pray for power to be gentle;
the power to forgive;
patience to understand
and the patience to accept the consequences
To hold what we believe to be right.

May we put our trust in the power of good to overcome evil
and the power of love to overcome hatred.

We pray for the vision to see and the faith to believe
In a world free from violence,
A new world where fear will no longer drive men or women to do injustice,
nor does selfishness drive them to harm others.

Help us to dedicate our whole life and thoughts 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.

A Prayer For Peace of Mind

Dear God, please grant me peace of mind and calm my troubled heart.

My soul is like a turbulent sea. I can’t find my balance so I constantly stumble and worry.

Give me strength and clarity of mind to find my purpose and walk the path you have set for me.

Oh God, I trust your love and I know you will heal this stress.

Like the sun rises every day against the darkness of the night. Please bring me clarity with the light of God.

Amen.
