Prayer for Peace 12/05/2024

Prayers for Peace

We pray for those lives,
made in your image,
damaged by violence.
We pray for those in authority
that they may use their power
to bind wounds, heal relationships and find common ground.
We pray for a transforming peace,
turning fear into trust,
pain into hope
and doubt into confidence
for a better future.
We pray for world leaders
that they may establish structures for justice,
protecting human dignity,
enabling reconciliation
and building God’s kingdom.    Amen. Prayer: Sue Cooper/CAFOD
