A Prayer in Celebration of Peace

May we be instruments for Peace
Tender, kind, forgiving one another
Open to new possibilities beyond old patterns
Respecting and treasuring our diversity.

May we be well, healed from our personal
Addictions and consuming anxieties
So we are more aware of grace in our daily living.

May we be open to courage, tenacity, and faith
Taking risks to move beyond our insane beliefs
That too often prevent us from nurturing the best within us.

May we be of good cheer, with a grateful heart
Today and forever more
Peace begins within, spreading like the rays of the morning sun
Giving hope to this war torn and weary world,
Ready to consider and celebrate our common yearnings for Peace
In our time, on this precious planet.
