“God is light and in him there is no darkness at all.” 1John 1:5
- When do I feel most at peace and most understood?
- What role do the Church’s Sacrament of Peace and reconciliation play in one’s inner peace?
- What could help me become more understanding?
- A.J. Muste says, “There is no way to peace, peace is the way.” What does this mean to me?
Prayer for World Peace
Lord we pray for the power to be gentle,
The strength to be forgiving,
The patience to be understanding
And the endurance to accept the consequences
Of holding to what we believe to be right.
May we put our trust in the power of good to overcome evil
And the power of love to overcome hatred.
We pray for the vision to see and the faith to believe in a world
Emancipated from violence, a new work where fear shall no longer lead people to commit injustice, nor selfishness make them bring suffering to others.
Help us to devote our whole life and thought and energy to the task of making peace.
Praying always for the inspiration and the power to fulfill the destiny for which we and all people were created.
