Prayers for Peace

“O God, it is your will to hold both heaven and earth in a single peace.  Let the design of your great love shine on the waste of our wraths and sorrows and give peace to your Church, peace among nations, peace in our homes, and peace in our hearts; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”   [Lutheran Book of Worship, 1978, p. 42]

The ministers in our town are gathering on May 5th, on the National Day of Prayer, with parishioners who can join us to pray for the nation and the world.  During the planning session, I reviewed the topics to be prayed for and noticed a gap.  I asked that a prayer for peace be included.  Because I asked, I was assigned the honor of praying the prayer.  I am now searching for prayers in order to think through what I feel will be appropriate to pray on that day.  Prayers for peace are always needed.

Blessings on all who read and pray this with me.  My hope is that peace breaks out and spreads from our hearts across the earth.

About Sonja Roberts Dalglish

I love people, math, physics, and theology. I love mysteries which may explain the list above. I am a polio survivor, having had the disease in August 1954. The vaccine was declared safe in April 1955. I am very pro vaccines. They have increased the health and well being of the world. Presently, I am living just west of Corpus Christi, in Kingsville. For naturalists, this seems to be where the coastal plane and the Wild Horse Dessert meet. It is flat which gives us beautiful sunsets. One of our concerns is climate change. We are already hot and dry and getting hotter and dryer. The cattlemen and women are having to graze fewer livestock these days.
