A Prayer for Peace

Creator of all that is–
We call different names…
we use different languages.
We have different sacred books…
we worship in different buildings.

Yet there are so many of us who wish nothing more
than to live in peace
with each other…

There are many forces
that pull us apart…
that try to divide us…

Help us to seek to understand each other,
to look for the things that unite
rather than divide.

Help us support the peacemakers…
help us to be peacemakers.

In a world so divided,
may we find ways to see as you see–

One world…
one people…
your peace.
