UN International Day of Peace

I meant to get this up last night but it just didn't happen...

Today is the UN International Day of Peace. It is a day of global cease fire and non-violence. In recognition of the day and to do your part to make peace a reality, please join in praying the prayer below at the following times today. (Or simply make it your prayer as you read it)

8 am
10 am
12 pm
2 pm
4 pm
6 pm
8 pm

O Divine Peacemaker,

Our spirits hunger for your love, for the taste of your joy and the aroma of your peace. In this time of prayer, fill me with the whisper of your presence and let me feel the touch of your hand upon my heart.

Our world is sin-soaked and broken beyond all human repair. Forgive us and our frailties, O Lord. Only your love and grace can mend our brokenness and the world's violence. Only your grace that is manifest in the lives of your people can bring wholeness to a battered and scarred world.

Make us purveyors of your peace. Calm our anger and our fear of vulnerability and suffering so that we, being centered in your love and peace, may respond in peace to others, even to those who are our enemies. Dispel our fear of cultures foreign to us so that we may engage in dialogue that will bring understanding. Grant a place for all people in your world, so that our brothers and sisters may have dignity and a home to call their own.

Throw wide open the window of my heart, so that the peace of your presence may pour out in all four directions showering its blessing upon all the earth. Robed in the splendor of your Spirit, may my prayer give peace to all the world.

Amen.
