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!
