A Prayer for Peacemakers

Spirit of God, give us the openness, deep within us to recognise, daily, all people as made in your image and likeness.

Help us to learn from one another the ways of being fully alive, at peace with ourselves and with those around us. Give us the courage to transform those parts of ourselves and our world that separate and create enmity.

Help us to take steps to stop the cycle of violence in our homes, in our workplaces, in our neighbourhoods, in our country, in our world.

May we be open to our deepest yearning, for a world alive with your justice and truth, to dream of a society where all are treated with respect, and, with the power of your Spirit, to take steps to bring it about.
