Prayer for the Week

Prayer for Peace

Let us pray for all who suffer as a result of conflict, and ask that God may give us peace:

for the service men and women who have died in the violence of war, each one remembered by and known to God;

for those who love them in death as in life, and still feel the pain and sadness of their loss;

for all members of the armed forces who are in danger this day, remembering family, friends  and all who pray for their safe return;

for civilian women, children and men whose lives are disfigured by war or terror, calling to mind in sorrow the anger and hatred of humanity;

for peace-makers and peace-keepers, who seek to keep this world secure and free;

for all who bear the responsibility of leadership, asking for gifts of wisdom and resolve in the search for reconciliation and peace.
