Prayer for Peace

Lord God, Remember Christ your Son who is peace itself

and who has washed away our hatred with His blood.

Lord Jesus, be that peace which we need in order to rightly live

as the cross bearing body you have desired us to be. You once broke

down a dividing wall of hostility, continue to do so, that we might be one body

united in you.

Spirit of the Living God, You alone can draw us into

what it means to be Christ’s Body, fill our life with that

peace that you make possible. Renew us to life, and frustrate our

cruel intentions that we might truly live for and with one another.

Grant Lord, that we might learn to live together in the peace

that your precious blood makes possible.

Forgive our sins, as we forgive others,

for this is the way of peace.
