Prayers for Peace

"Blessed are the peacemakers," the Lord taught us in The Sermon on the Mount, "for they will be called children of God."

And so, seeking to grow in faithfulness to the Lord, we set about making peace, working for it's fruition in every dark corner of the world.  

And as in all our work for the Kingdom, we begin with prayer, praying that God's peace may touch all places where violence seek a foothold, and if it be His will, may our hands have a part.

Use the prayers below in your homes and communities as we together pray for that peace.
