Prayers for Peace by Judy Brutz
Lord, the world's turmoil and violence with the great threats of escalation are overwhelming. How may the Civil Rights Movement bring us light and hope? Night is here, only you may fill our hearts with peace and love. Only you may heal and comfort. And only your Spirit can inspire reconciliation, nonviolence and universal community building. Don't abandon us. Stay close; hold us in your love. Amen
Our hearts cry out, let there be peace. Dear Lord, save us from war. Night is here, we can only turn to you. Hold us in your love. Fill us with your peace. Call forth the nations to peace, reconciliation and global community, we ask. We bless you and thank you for the gift of life. Amen
All the earth cries out, Beloved One, may your peace and reconciliation quiet the madness of this world. Night is with us, enfold us in your love, and forgive our crimes against your creation. Fill us with your peace and gentleness, hope and joy. Thank you for your blessings and in not giving up on us. Amen
Beloved Reconciler, you call us to love our enemies and to forgive. Night has fallen, please hold us close, strengthen us with your love that we may walk in love and peace regardless of what faces us. Radiate your love to the whole world. Move the leaders to lay down their warfare. We ask in your name. Amen
The Sabbath draws to a close, Holy One. Thank you for the blessings of worship, fellowship and your bountiful creation. We are renewed in hope and strengthened in following you. Night surrounds us, comfort, heal and hold us in your love. Still the warcries and bring enemies to making peace. Amen
