31 Days of Prayer – Pray for Peace

At the beginning of the month, we prayed the Peace Prayer of St. Francis. However, the need to pray for peace has been weighing heavily in my heart.

We live in such a broken world. There seems to be violence and hatred everywhere. So many people are louder and ruder and generally disquieted. Peace seems impossible but nothing is impossible with God. Let us pray for peace within our hearts, peace with our neighbors and peace for the whole world.

Here is a little prayer I wrote:

Heavenly Father, we come to you humbly to ask You to bring peace into our world. Peace starts with ourselves, so please help us to turn our hearts to You, the giver of true, lasting inner peace. As St Francis asks, help us to be an instrument of peace to others. We ask for peace in the hearts of our neighbors, and yes, peace to our “enemies” Bring Your peace to the whole world. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Carol D’Annunzio

Watch this video from Reba McEntire. It is a simple,  yet powerful, message and reminder for us to pray for peace.
