Opening Prayer

A prayer for this new day (anonymous)

Gracious God, thank you for your gift of today.
Refresh us, invite us, to discover your presence in each person we meet and every event encountered.
In moments of challenge and decision, attune our hearts to the whisperings of your wisdom.
As we undertake ordinary and unnoticed tasks, gift us with simple joy.
When our day goes well, may we rejoice; when it grows difficult, surprise us with new possibilities.
When life is overwhelming, call us to Sabbath moments to restore your peace and harmony.
May our living today reveal your goodness.

Community Prayer

O God, you are the source of life and peace.
Praised be your name forever.
We know it is you who turn our minds to thoughts of peace.
Hear our prayer in this time of violence and hatred.
Your power changes hearts.
We from many faith traditions and cultures profoundly affirm,
that we are followers of the one God, by many names called;
brothers and sisters;
enemies begin to speak to one another;
those who were estranged join hands in friendship;
nations seek the way of peace together.
Strengthen our resolve to give witness to
these truths by the way we live.
Give to us:
Understanding that puts an end to strife;
Mercy that quenches hatred;
Justice that heals and restores; and
Forgiveness that overcomes vengeance.
Empower all people to live in your law of love. Amen.

Interfaith Prayer for Peace, based upon the Muslim, Jewish, Christian Prayer for Peace from Pax Christi USA and the Fellowship of Reconciliation
