Prayer for Peace

man praying with folded hands peacefully


Too often we are quick to anger. And the world seems to be acting in kind. But we can be living examples of Christ’s message. What can you do to bring peace into your community, your home, your heart?


God of peace,
Anger surrounds me, trying to build a home in my heart.
With your help, I will counter that anger with love.
With your guidance, I will choose the way of peace and humility.
With your will, I can rise above the chaos
and the noise and the hatred to a place
of stillness where I know you await me.


Share this prayer with someone whose heart is wounded by the world’s troubles. Sometimes a prayerful word can lift a battered spirit.
