Let me pause as I begin this new day to give it to You, Lord.
Before the tumult of activities breaks in;
before breakfast plates crash through my still sleepy mind;
for this last moment in my bed, thank you, Lord.

Lord Jesus Christ,
who are called the Prince of Peace,
who are yourself our peace and reconciliation,
grant us peace.
Make all men and women witnesses of truth,
justice, and brotherly love.
Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace.
Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee
and defend the great gift of peace.

Gracious Lord almighty, Jesus Christ,
let Your sufferings aid us,

from sudden and unforeseen death,
and from all persecution of our foes visible and invisible.

and share what I have with the poor.
