for Peace from Many Faiths
(Faiths in alphabetical order)
Be a breath
of life unto the body of humankind,
a dew upon the soil of the human heart,
and a fruit upon the tree of humility.
May all beings everywhere plagued with
sufferings of body and mind
quickly be freed from their illnesses.
May all beings swiftly attain Buddhahood.
Love your enemies,
do good to those who hate you.
Oh God, lead us from the unreal to the Real.
Oh God, lead us from
darkness to light.
Oh God, lead us from death to immortality.
Shanti, Shanti, Shanti unto all.
Peace and universal love is the essence of all the Gospels.
do I creatures all,
and let all creatures forgive me.
Oh come let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
that we may walk
the paths of the Most High.
And we will beat our swords into ploughshares
and our spears into pruning hooks.
Praise be to the Lord of the Universe,
who has created us and made
us into tribes and nations
that we may know each other,
not despise each other.
Native African Prayer
you are one who does not hesitate to respond to our call,
you are the cornerstone of peace.
Give us the wisdom to teach our children to love,
to respect and to be kind to one another,
we may grow with peace in mind.
We earnestly wish that the wind will soon puff
all the clouds hanging over the tops of the mountains.
Know that we attain God when we love,
and only that victory endures
in consequence of which
no one is defeated.
Lady of Peace who hears the cries of the world
Extend your power
through me and with me;
Bless those in harms way.
Bless those who are suffering.
Bless those who are dying.
the lost unknowing dead.
Bless those who love.
Bless those who are helping.
Bless those who are scared.
those who can do nothing but wait.
Bless those who are falsely suspected.
Bless those of limited understanding.
those upholding civil liberties.
Bless those who, though well intentioned, do wrong.
Bless the Ancestors
and hold us dear;
may we feel their comfort, too.
Bless those who work and pray for peace
throughout the good, green
Bless us all, hold us safe within your embrace.
So Mote It Be!
pray to God that understanding will triumph over ignorance,
that generosity will triumph over indifference,
will triumph over contempt,
and that truth will triumph over falsehood.
