A Prayer for Peace
Almighty God, from whom all thoughts of truth and peace proceed, kindle in the hearts of all men the true love of peace, and guide with Your pure and peaceable wisdom those who make decisions for the nations of the earth; that in tranquility Your kingdom may go forward, till the earth be filled with the knowledge of Your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Cherokee Prayer for Peace
O Great Spirit,
As I walk through a world of hatred, greed, and wars,
Help me to find a path where my children can walk
beside the still waters of faith, hope, and peace.

A Buddhist Prayer
Evoking the presence of the great compassion, let us fill our hearts with our own compassion – towards ourselves and towards all living beings.
Let us pray that all living beings realise that they are all brothers and sisters, all nourished from the same source of life.

Jewish Prayer for Peace
Come let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, that we may walk the paths of the most high.
And we shall beat our swords into ploughshares, and our spears into pruning hooks.
Nations shall not lift up sword against nation – neither shall they learn war any more.
And none shall be afraid, for the mouth of the Lord of Hosts has spoken.

  1. Let us know peace.
    For as long as the moon shall rise,
    For as long as the rivers shall flow,
    For as long as the sun will shine,
    For as long as the grass shall grow,
    Let us know peace.
