Pray antiphonally or alone…for peace.

Silently     O, Dear God, so many people are in pain all over the earth.

Aloud       Teach me the way to peace.

Silently     When people around me don’t agree and think differently,

Aloud       Teach me to listen and seek to understand, not just to reply.

Silently     When I see people getting hurt,

Aloud       Teach me to speak up and act.

Silently     When I see people treated poorly because of their skin color, or language, or religious belief,

Aloud       Teach me to be an example of Your love and acceptance.

Silently     When I see war and conflict,

Aloud       Teach me how to make a difference and seek Your peace.

Silently     When I see pain,

Aloud       Teach me to bring healing,

Silently     When I feel confused and afraid,

Aloud       Remind me to talk to my friends, my family and to You.

Silently     In our lives, our neighborhoods, and the world,

Aloud       Teach me to pray and teach me the way of peace.

For Jesus’ sake, I pray. Amen!
