Prayer for Peace
For all who dream of peace
For all who long for justice
Bend your ear to listen and your arm to save
For all who faint from hunger
For all who thirst for mercy
Give bread and grant freedom from all that binds and oppresses
For all whose lives are intertwined with systems that harm
-systems that violate, exploit, exclude, objectify, and dominate
Inspire a longing for justice and the courage to break free from the powers that oppress
Set our feet on the paths of peace
And move our hands to do the work of justice
May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Written by Titus Peachey, director of peace education for MCC U.S.
