A Prayer for Peace

by The Rev. Nigel Mumford
May/Jun 2003

Lord, you said to your apostles, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. I do not give as the world gives, do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. "Help me heed those words and fully hear them as I seek peace in my life and pray for peace in t he world. / look for a state of calm and quiet in my mind, in my soul and in my body. I pray for an absence of war and strife in this world. May your perfect peace fall on me and on this wonderful earth that you gave us. Lord, I humbly ask for the gift of peace that passes all understanding. Help me not to try to reason the mystery of peace but to accept the gift. you have given us. Help me to adopt an attitude of gratitude and receive, with thanks, peace perfect peace.

Let your perfect peace rest on me and my house, let peace return to me, put me on the path of peace. Thank you, Lord God.

Thank you, Jesus, for your words: "Go in peace and be freed from your suffering."

"Be at peace with each other." Amen.
