Prayer for peace

A Prayer For Peace

We say a prayer for peace of mind, aching hearts and the ones we lost which we still hold so dear.

A prayer for peace becomes almost a necessity after watching the violence that is so often reported in the news and which we see on our own streets.

Peace on the outside comes from knowing God on the inside.

A Prayer For Peace By St. Francis of Assisi.

“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.”
– St. Francis of Assisi

Our Prayer For Peace Of Mind

Dear Lord,
Please let your peace seep into my life and soul. I am immersed in noise in all places I go and feel as though your word is slowly being drowned out by it. Rescue my mind from these distractions so I can have the peace of mind to concentrate on your word, oh mighty Lord I thank you.
