Prayers for Peace
Hi, everyone! In light of everything that has gone on over the past few days in our country I wanted to share with you this prayer for peace that I found, it's a brief prayer written by St. John XXIII. Let us continue to pray for peace throughout our world!
Lord Jesus Christ, who are called the Prince of Peace, who are yourself our peace and reconciliation, who so often said, “Peace to you,” grant us peace.
Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice, and brotherly love. Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace.
Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace.
May all peoples of the earth become as brothers and sisters. May longed-for peace blossom forth and reign always over us all.
— St. John XXIII
