Prayer for Peace

Passages for Meditation

Send us Thy peace, O Lord,
which is perfect and everlasting,
that our souls may radiate peace.

Send us Thy peace, O Lord,
that we may think, act, and speak harmoniously.

Send us Thy peace, O Lord,
that we may be contented and
thankful for Thy bountiful gifts.

Send us Thy peace, O Lord,
that amidst our worldly strife
we may enjoy Thy bliss.

Send us Thy peace, O Lord,
that we may endure all, tolerate all
in the thought of Thy grace and mercy.

Send us Thy peace, O Lord,
that our lives may become a divine vision,
and in Thy light all darkness may vanish.

Send us Thy peace, O Lord,
our Father and Mother,
that we, Thy children on earth,
may all unite in one family.
