Prayer for Peace

Good and gracious Father, 
You created the human race as one human family,
yet formed a special people for Your own. 
God of Abraham the Patriarch, God of King David, 
watch over our nation!

May our government leaders be blessed with wisdom, 
counsel, and prudent discernment 
in creating just laws for our land.

May all service men and women be protected 
as they defend our freedom and way of life. 
May all citizens work together for the common good 
and the protection of the least among us.

Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, it is in 
Your coming kingdom that we place our trust. 
Give us the grace here and now to love as you love 
and to serve as you served.

Holy Spirit, inspire us to transform our communities |
on earth as it is in heaven.
