The Peace Prayer

By Laura Swindon-Ross

Lord, let us sit around the table

And learn of Peace

In the dialog of nations

And the stratagems of government

Where the ear of God is listening;

Lord, let us look unto this Earth

And learn of  Peace

As we look out through the windows

At the stirrings of our planet, as she makes

Accommodation

For the errors in our judgment

As we learn to better manage

Our inheritance;

Lord, let us look at our fellow man

And learn of  Peace

In the challenges of poverty

And the hand that measures wealth

May we befriend that Charity

That offers hope and education

Love and emancipation

For the sick and the oppressed;

Lord, let us look unto ourselves

And learn of  Peace

In the sanctuary of the family

Where the process is begun

Where parents teach their children

That the tolerance of the one

Begets the loving happiness of many;

It’s a big world, Lord;

Help us to live Your Word

And understand

That there’s Room for Everyone

In it —

We ask this in Christ’s name,

Amen.
