Prayer for the Peace of the World PDF Print E-mail

Oh Thou, the Almighty Sun,  
whose light cleareth away all clouds  
We take refuge in Thee  
king of all people, God of all deities,  Lord of all angels.
We pray Thee dispel the mists of illusion  from the hearts of the nations
 and lift their lives  by Thy all-sufficient power.
Pour upon them  
   Thy limitless love  
   Thy everlasting life  
   Thy heavenly joy  
   and Thy perfect peace.                                                     Amen

Prayer from "A Grateful Heart" PDF Print E-mail

We pray for those who dance with life in the face of death.
For those whose unkind visitor
    brought them great limitation
    for whom the plague is real.
For the child, the woman, the old man;
    the banker, the teacher,
    the prisoner, the priest.
For the artist, the musician, the player.
For the worker, the lover of imagination,
    the dreamer of dreams.

For those who were told not to love,
    and dared to love anyway.
For those who hid for a lifetime,
    and those who bravely ventured out.

For those who die alone,
    and those who leave surrounded by love.
For all the victims of that dark night,
    that they may reach the dawn of victory.

To them, we bow inwardly.
They are with us, now and in memory,
    and in the hope of the new day.

Prayer from the Week of Prayer for World Peace, 1978 PDF Print E-mail

God bless you with the power to be gentle.
The strength to be forgiving; the patience to be understanding
And the endurance to accept the consequences
to holding to what you believe to be right.
May you put your trust in the power of good to overcome evil
And the power of love to overcome hatred.  
May you have the vision to see and the faith to believe
    In a world emancipated from violence,
    a new world where fear
shall no longer lead people to commit injustice,
nor selfishness make them bring suffering to others.
May God grant you the inspiration and the power
to fulfill the destiny for which you were created.     Amen.

Poem by Robert French Leavens PDF Print E-mail

We are all partakers of the bread of life,
Out of the lap of Mother Earth,
And from the hands of our human benefactors;
Many a life has been given for us,
Many a body has been broken for us,

We are all partakers of the water of life,
Out of the springs and streams of the earth,
And of the blood of life,
In uncounted sacrifices made in our behalf.  

In ministrations such as these hath God nourished us;
Freely we have received, freely let us give.
