A Prayer for Peace

May 17, 2018

O Lord of Peace, the world awaits.
It cries of children torn from families.
Of mothers broken and shattered.
Of fathers helpless and distraught.

O Lord of Peace, the world awaits.
Bless this world, O Lord,
with the peace You promised.
Begin in me Your work of peace;
guide me in the path of peace
complete in me Your peace.

May Your peace bring healing
to wounds caused by hate and anger.
May Your peace move us to act.
Grant us the grace to be merciful and understanding,
Removing indifference and be more loving.

O Lord of Peace, the world awaits
when children return to their families,
of mothers whole and complete,
of fathers strong and hopeful.

O Lord of Peace, the world awaits.

- Columban Fr. Kurt Zion Pala
